Internet and network sync

Can internet sync and network be sync be available at the same time or is it one or the other? In other words, I have a couple of machines in the office on network sync and I am about to give Act to an outside rep who I want to sync in to the main database through the internet. Is this possible?

Re: Internet and network sync

Both services can be enabled at the same time, since one syncs through the Internet and another through a network port. On the remote database, go to Tools/Synchronization Panel and select Manage Connection Information. Under Connection Type, you can put in the connection information for both services. Then check the box for "Prompt me for which address to use....". So when the user syncs, they will choose whether to use the Internet sync or the Network sync service.
