How to set-up sync, and which method works better?

Hello,

  I have one database that I use on a laptop and home pc. I would like my laptop to "update" my pc when I make changes to the database.

 

  I currently connect my laptop through a wireless router and the pc has a lan connection directly from the router.

 

  What is going to be my best method to update the pc? Shared DB, ect.....

 

  Are there step by step instructions anywhere on the ACT website?

 

  Using 2008 Prem EX w/ the 10.03 update. Thanks.

BrianNydish,

 

You'll want to setup network synchronization. You'll want to have the main database on the workstation and create a remote database for the laptop.  This will allow you to take the laptop on the road and synchronize when you come back to the office.

 

The knowledge base article below will give you step by step instructions.
