Vista Problems

I have a network setup with Microsoft SBS 08 and several workstations.  I am also using ACT! Premium 2009 for Web.  I keep my DB on the server and the XP wired XP workstations can access it fine, but on my wireless Vista laptop I get the error message "The DB cannot be accessed.  In order to access this DB, check your network connection and verify your DB server is availible...."  I tried turning off the firewall and this did not help.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Vista Problems

mprentice84,

 

Please try this on your Vista wireless machine.

 

Get the actual IP address of your SBS 2008 server / ACT Website. 

 

On your Vista machine, to access your Web site, use :http://IP.address.here/APFW

 

See if that gets you access.

 

Please post your results.

 

thanks
