Synchronizing databases

We are currently running ACT Premium 2009 (Ver 11) on two PC's on a peer-to-peer network. Originally, with ACT2000 and before, we synchronized directly and since we updated, both databases have been modified independently. What I want to know is how do I synchronize 2 databases with the same name over a peer-to-peer network?

Re: Synchronizing databases

The synchronisation model for ACT! Premium 2009 is based on a publisher to subscriber relationship which is a parent/child, not a peer relationship. As such you will need to import data from one to the other, assign that database as publisher and create a sync set and remote database from it. ACT! 2000 had two models, a one to one model and a many (user) to one (user) model. It changed to publisher/subscriber with ACT! 2005 and up.
