That is something you'll have to talk to FileMaker, Inc about. This is not related to the built-in Apache web server... ML does not block anything. It simply no longer has an easy way to turn on Apache, but Apache is still there. In any case, though, Apache is not relevant to FileMaker's sharing of databases. Even if you have web sharing turned on in FileMaker, that means that FileMaker itself acts as the web server, not Apache.

There is an easy way to turn Apache back on.. http://clickontyler.com/blog/2012/02/web-sharing-mountain-lion/ works well.

Yes, but that's not relevant to your problems with FileMaker. Unless something has changed with FileMaker 12. (I haven't used it in a couple versions now.) I doubt that's the case, however.

FileMaker 12 changed the file format, which means that Pro 12 is unable to connect to FileMaker Pro/Server 11 or earlier (and Pro 11 or earlier is not able to connect to Pro/Server 12). If any one client needs to run FileMaker 12, you would have to upgrade everyone to FileMaker 12 (including the server).
If a copy of FileMaker Pro 12 has been purchased for one computer only, you can contact FileMaker Inc. and purchase a downgrade licence to FileMaker Pro 11, for US$5 (or similar prices in other currencies).
I can't explain why Pro 10 on Mountain Lion would be unable to connect to Pro/Server 10 or 11 on Snow Leopard.
FileMaker Inc. have not tested FileMaker 10 for Mountain Lion compatibility, so it may have some issues (it has some known issues on Lion, but not in the area of networked databases).
They have tested Pro 11 on Mountain Lion, and they claim it is compatible apart from complications with Gatekeeper for installation.
I'm running Pro 11 on Mountain Lion, but I haven't tried network connections to other instances of FileMaker 11. I can set up a test, but won't have a chance for a few days, so hopefully someone else will chip in.
You might also have better luck asking this question on the FileMaker discussion forums.

Graeme Jervis2 did you every get this issue resolved? I have around 200 machines (10.5-10.7 and PCs) running FM10 or 11 all hiting a server running FM 10 server. All 200 work fine, I now have 2 10.8 machines that will not connect to this server. These 2 10.8 machines were custom set-ups so I do not think there is any sort of an image issue.
