Which Premium Version Do I need?

We have a team of 5 remote users all working on a laptop. What is the best and most cost effective version of Act Premium do we need to be able to have all 5 of our users sync their databases once a week. We just need a peer-to-peer connectivity / sync option and nothing more. We will not have it on a server/ via citrix/ etc...

 

I have been told that Act 2009 Ex Edition is an offline edition where we could sync our data through the internet but not sure how that would work since we don't have a server. I see there is a corporate version as well that an online  or web based version which would work if we had someone host our data. 

 

Any advice would be great.

Re: Which Premium Version Do I need?

To have remote users, you need to have a central local that they can sync to. I've listed the steps and options here:

If you don't have one system with a permanent internet connection, you might look at a remote host from this list:
