Remote Database Syncing Question - ACT Pro 2013

I have ACT Pro on a work PC.


I have an employee who works at a remote office.  I created the remote database.  She opened it.  I see I will have to set up the host to receive incoming syncs.


I can't find instructions on how she syncs back. I read kb 15152.  Towards the end of the article, I see "How To Start Synchronization From a Remote Database:", yet the internet connection is not explained.


To sumarize, I do not see in the kb where it describes how to set up the internet portion of a sync.  Maybe I need to set up a vpn (haven't done this in while, and not sure how.)



The second question I have is how to do sync back from my laptop.  I did this frequently about 5 years ago, and can't recall the process.

Thank you,

Act! Pro doesn't support internet synchronisation, a VPN (or other network connection) is required. With Act! Pro  you need to have the main database opened with Act! to be able to synchronise.
