FMP Version: FileMaker 7 and higher
Returns A Text Result
Previous versions of FileMaker supported a number of different network protocols. Currently, a network protocol called TCP/IP is king and the other protocols are used in older legacy systems. FileMaker 7 is an advanced database package and doesn't support the older legacy protocols. FileMaker 7 through FileMaker 9 only supports TCP/IP, so this function will return TCP/IP all the time. This is even true is the network sharing option is disabled. So the function still exists (most likely) for backwards compatibility with older solutions or the remote possibility a new protocol will be supported in the foreseeable future.
