Syncing Two Computers Without Server?

Hi Everyone,

 

I currently have a client who purchased ACT 2009 and would like to be able to install the database on their desktop and laptop and sync updates between the two.  However, they do not have a server of any kind.  That being the case, how would this be achieved?

 

Any help is appreciated

 

Thanks

Hello,

 

In order to setup synchronization all you really need is a Host/Publisher computer (your desktop, which would also act as the "server" ) and a subscriber machine (your laptop) that are networked.

 

You would host the database on the desktop machine, but setup the network sync service on it as well so that the laptop could synchronize to it.

 

In order to do so, you would follow the instructions in this knowledge base article:

Hope this helps.
