Synchronising or sharing data in Act 2009 basic

I am looking into returning to Act after a few years elsewhere.

Reading the product info, it says that Act 2009 (basic version) supports up to 10 users, but there is no information about how data can be shared or synchronised.

All references to synchronisation are for Act 2009 Premium in the literature.

I will only have two or three users of a single database.

Can I sync directly between users, without the need for a server?

Alternatively, can I share the database on a server?

If so, does the server require a copy of Act 2009 also?

Thanks

Edwin, in both cases, ACT! is installed on the box that hosts the database, as that SQL instance is required for the database to work.

Both the Standard and Premium versions are able to share and synchronise. Typically ACT! would be installed on the Server and shared, making it accessible to each client.

Many thanks Neil.

 

I am not sure if my new office will have a full server, or just a file server, probably the latter.

I which case, would I be correct in believing that direct user-to-user synchronisation is the only possibility?
