Re: Hosting Web Access on my desktop

My brother's company have decided to go with ACT Pro for now. We bought 4 licenses from a certified seller on ebay.

Judging from this article, my only option for sync is Application sync. Correct?

Re: Hosting Web Access on my desktop

When using Application Sync, do all remote workstations have to be in the same room with the server for the initial sync? I have partners that live in different states. According to the article above, can I still sync with users that live out of state?

When I created my database, I could not select "Share Database with other users." I tried enabling this through tools>database maintenance but that option is grayed out. I have updated my ACT Pro with the SP 1 and Hotfix 4. What am I doing wrong?

That was quick. Thanks. Ya, I figured out it was the logging in as Admin part. Does ACT offer their 30 day support over the weekend?

In the step where one creates remote databases. Do I use Internet or Network for Application Sync?

Application Sync doesn't use either of them ... and usually only used if you don't have the Premium version of ACT!

Figured it out. For those who need to also know, select network when prompted. This article has all the steps you need:
