When using growlnotify be sure that the user on the computer displaying the growl messages hasÂ privilegesÂ to run terminal. Â Open Directory allows admins to prevent access to applications. Â I have terminal access blocked for most of my users. Â This block was preventing access to growl notify.
Here is an example of what to use with the applescript step in FileMaker to send growl notifications.
do shell script “usr/local/bin/growlnotify -m ‘message here’ Â -H 192.168.1.1”
The receiving computer has to have listen for incoming connections enabled under the “network” tab of the growl preference panel.
