Hello everyne. Well, I've gone a messed up my main compuer to the point I have to send it in to IT.
The good news is that I have an external backup that s up to date from the damaged computer.
I have also been running a remote db on a 2nd compter that has not sync'dyet
1. Can the remote db and the host db be on the same system and sync?
2. Is there any way I can use an external HDD to manage the syncing?
3. Is there a question I should have asked?
Thanks n advance for your response

No, the ACT install for the Publisher is tied to the computer name of the other computer. You can not just move the external hard drive to the other machine and sync the database.

When you get your computer back do a restore As to the new setup but you will need to recut the remote for the second machine.
If you want to synch then one way is to use Hamachi to create the tunnel to the second machine and there is even some instruction on this in the KB

I had set up Hamachi, but my company computer apparently is blocking the connection. My use of ACT is rogue and not supported by our IT department.
I also tried to join the hom network, but was unsuccessful dong that as well.
Thanks so much for your suggestion.
