Sync Error

Hello people,


I have just installed ACT! 2009 on our application server and on one laptop, I have setup the database on the server copy and I can access the main database from my laptop.


I have created a remote database on my laptop and setup a sync set, the only problem is that when i try to sync the two databases i get the following error


"failed to setup remote sync entity. invalid URI: the hostname could not be parsed"


Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Sync Error

Try changing the computer name to the IP address of the server.


How to find the IP address:

- On the server, go to Start and select Run.

- Type in cmd and click Ok.

- Type ipconfig and press enter.


How to change computer name to the IP.

- On the remote database, go to Tools > Synchronization Panel

- Click Manage Connection Information
