Is it possible to connect a 2011 client to a 2010 server. We bought a copy of act for a new employee and i added a user to the server for him that says active-pending. When the user tries to login it tells him to update his version of ACT. and then tries to backup. It stops with a generic "error in the application" message.

You do not want the 2011 client to connect to the 2010 server. It is attempting to update the database to the 2011 format. If it succeeds, the remainder of users with ACT! 2010 will no longer be able to access the database.
You cannot mix versions of ACT! when accessing the same database.
