Databse Sync.: How to have the remote DB and the parent database publishing to each other

Hello,

 

I would like to know if it is possible for a remote database to update the parent database and the other way around too.

We have a main office working with the parent DB and a branch working with a subset. They could both change a contact / company belonging to the subset therefore both offices should be updated when there is a sync.

 

Thank you

Gregory

Hello Roy,

Thank you for your reply.
Does it mean that both database parent and child are able to publisher into the other one?
Is there a specific setting to turn on? It seems that by default only the parent can publish into the subset.

There may be a bit of confusion. The sync confuguration is a star configurationm not a peer to peer. The publisher contorl the sync network and is the only database able to change the look and feel of the network, in other words, the only dataase that can add or remove fields. All data syncs are two way so that if all syncs are current, all the databases will have the same data.
