I am based in China, so apologies for the very basic question but the support here is very poor.


I have bought ACT, I have now installed on my computer which is fine, but now I would like to link to 2 other colleagues in my office. How do I do this? Can we just link using wireless internet? Do we need to link via a server? If so, can my laptop act as a server? Apologies I am a beginner to IT.


If my laptop cannot act as a server, do I need to purchase something else?

Re: Server

Hello johnshanghai,

Welcome to the ACT! Online Community. In order to share you database, you must first establish a connection between the machine that is hosting the database and the other machines. This can be wireless network or an Internet VPN. Please see KB Article 13878 for information on sharing an ACT! database over a network.
