NAS Database share

How can we share a DB between 2 users (1-Vista 1-XP), both connected to a NAS drive, where we want to store the database? Company server is unable to support loading ACT at the server, the NAS drive and 2 pc's are connected to a switch. Thanks for any insight.

Tony,

 

ACT! and SQL are required to be installed on the server.  If you're unable to, use one of the workstations to host the database.

Re: NAS Database share

Thanks for responding. Both systems are notebooks and we were hoping not to have to go about it that way; wouldn't using one of the systems as the host for the DB hinder the performance?

 

Anyway to install ACT and SQL on the NAS drive?

 

Any other suggestions definitely appreciated.
