I got this error on my machine when i was trying to fetch data through XML Web Publishing. To fix it, I enable the XSLT web publishing in FMS in FMS Admin Console->Configuration->Web Publishing->XSLT Tab->Check Enable XSLT publishing option.This solved my problem.

|I am seeing error 956 on a single machine! This only happens on a reboot and if I reboot again the error goes away. What is causing this? It makes me crazy.|

|When using a dual machine deployment, this error is a catch-all for connectivity problems between the worker machine and the master machine.
There are two main areas to check:
1) Verify that the necessary ports are open on both machines and the firewall. FMS9 ports and their uses are listed in the FileMaker Knowledge Base (Issue #6427).
2) Each machine must have a domain name, an ip address is not enough. Even a local domain name will suffice. Make sure that the worker machine is able to reference the master machine by its domain name and vice versa.

|This is something that you get in Lasso when Lasso can see the FileMaker database names but not the table names.|
