I have ACT on my main computer in my office, but a couple co-workers and I travel around constantly. How do we get ACT usuable on all our laptops? I cant get online and need to know how to access the ACT database even though I cant get onto a server. Is there any way of doing it without using a disk? Any suggestions???
Yeah, we use it for all our smaller clients who don't have a VPN configured. Concurrent users no problem - its easisest to understand if you have a look at it but basically you create a network initally and then join users to the network so you are all essentialy on a LAN together. You can even use it for file sharing between machines and chat etc. We have been using it for about 2-3 years (since before Log Me In bought it) and I can only remeber one major disruption when it went down for a day. Premium users were up in about half that time but the free users had to wait longer.
Alan Dension - what a classic, what more can you say - he was singing your praises yesterday on the phone
I'll have to have a play with their VPN and will let you know if I find any issues...
Yeah, I've been doing on-line support for ACT! since Symantec started the CompuServe forums many years ago and still do most of the replies on about a dozen forums including one than Alan is a member of. I always recommend ACCs once an issue goes beyond simple posts and he asked about UK ACCs and your company. I told him that I hadn't seen your work but had read quite a few of your posts and that you're should be good investment for him to make :-)
I don't know many of the UK ACCs now and they don't seem to have a public list on the web. If they do, can you post the URL?
I've dealt with Paul King for many years, but he's kinda left the ACT! fold now (as you'd know)... so, I guess we might chat off-line and see if we can benefit each other?
Drop me a PM here or email me if you're interested.
