Shared database access stopped

Hi Everyone,

 

We had a shared database up and running for about two weeks, then one of the users couldn't open it anymore.

 

We have a small system with ACT! 2009 on one workstation (acting as the "server") and one other user from another workstation.

 

Any ideas why it would just stop working?

 

Thanks!

We are running 2008, so this may be wrong, but make sure the "Share Database" option is still checked. Tools | Database Options | Share Database. Ours sometimes loses the check mark and we have to recheck it on the computer that hosts the database file.

Thanks for the tip. That was one of the things I tried, and it might have worked (not sure what got it going again because I tried all the troubleshooting steps).
