I have Act! on my Windows Server in my office and would like to be able to connect to it outside of work from my laptop.
Is this possible?
If so how do I connect to it from outside the office?

There are 2 ways, so as you have posted on this forum do you have ACT for WEB installed on the server or just Premium?
If web then you can arrange for the database to be accessed from the laptop as a web service.
(NB: The premium version comes with the option of installing ACT for WEB on your own server.)
Advantage is that you do not need a full version of ACT on your laptop. Disadvantage is that you must be connected to the internet to see the database.
If just premium you can install ACT on your laptop and then make a sync copy of the server database and add it to your laptop.
You can now access the database on your laptop and you will need to sync the laptop remote to the server copy on a regular basis to keep both up-to-date.
Sync can be set via a Lan connection or an internet connection.
Lastly if allowed consider a remote connection to the server like RDP or Aeroadmin so you can access the sever from home.
Will expand on the options once I understand what you have on the server and what you are allowed to do in your work place.
