How do I sync 2 computers with there own databases?

Hello,
 
I have two laptops with there own act databases.  They are on a local network.
How can I sync them so they see the same information?
 
No server involved, just the two laptops.
 
So if A updates it's schedule and B updates it's schedule, after the sync they will see the schedule changes on both.
 
Thank you

What version of ACT!?
Generally speaking if they started life as 2 seperate dbs you would need to merge them together so you have one central database.  You would then need to put this on one of the laptops and create a remote database to be put on the other laptop.  Then you could use something like Hamachi to create a VPN between the two laptops and sync.  This is different depending on whether you are pre or post ACT! 7.  I would reccomend though that you find a local ACC in your area that could complete this work for you as it will save you a lot of time and headaches in the long run.  You can find a list of ACCs for you country/region at act.com.
