For some reason, the network sync is not working on my computers. I have the parent database installed on a server. The remote database is installed on my laptop. When I try to sync from the laptop, I get the following message:
"ACT! is unable to connect to the sync server. Check to be sure "accept incoming sync" is enabled in the main database and that the Network sync service is running. Also be sure you are connected to your network. Contact your administrator for assistance."
I checked the server and verified that the sync service is running. Act is also open. What do I need to do to make it work?

Thank you for your response. I pinged the server computer from my laptop and was able to do so. Ping gave me data about the IP address. So, I think there is a connection. But I still cannot get network sync to work.

Now check that they're both using the same port normally 65100. Also that this port is not being blocked at the server by Windows Firewall.

OK, I used telnet from the laptop (remote) computer and the server. I entered:
From the server,
telnet 192.168.1.101 65100
and from the laptop,
telnet 192.168.1.104 65100
Each time, the computer from where I typed the command would sit for a fews seconds and then read:
"Connecting To 192.168.1.1XX...Could not open connection to the host, on port 65100: Connect failed"
I think the port is not open?
