SSL certificate for Filemaker Server 17

Dear Forum,
I am running Filemaker Server 17 on an iMac (from 2010 or so), on which I now make a database publicly accessible via FIlemaker Webdirect ( - for this page I would need an SSL certificate so that the database can be accessed from all browsers. Can I get such a certificate from let´s encrypt?
Best, Abermann

Hi @Abermann

short answer: No, because you use an ip address.

Better answer - yes. Use a domain with that ip address as A record and change the link, so the domain is used.

Then you can create a certificate.
