Application sync

Have three copies of ACT 2010 Stanadard. Publishing database is on our server as a share. Application installed on server, two client workstations and laptop with a remote database. 


Problem: Incoming sync only works if the publishing database is opened directly on the server. How can I receive incoming sync from remote wihile a client has the publishing database open? The client role is full admin for this database.

Re: Application sync

ACT! is working as designed. In ACT! Standard, the sync service is part of the application, so the program and the database must be running. If you need to be able to sync while ACT! is closed on the server, then you would have to upgrade to ACT! Premium. The Premium versions include two separately running sync services (Network Sync and Internet Sync) that will run when the main application is closed.
