VPN Connection problem



I use ACT on my PC as well as a laptop for the field. When I am connected to LAN line, everything works well. However, when I use my laptop out in the field via VPN/wireless card, ACT responds very slow. Is there a way to fix that? Is there a way to use the ACT offline and have it sync at the end of the day?

Re: VPN Connection problem

The slowdown you are seeing when accessing your system data over the VPN is not an ACT! issue per se, it is a factor of how fast is your wireless connection - i.e. - 3G vs 4G etc.


Further, a VPN encrypts the data being transferred over the connection.  This has a SIGNIFICANT cost on the available bandwidth - and thus, performance.


Lastly, yes, ACT! does offer a syncrhonization feature.  Check out the knowledge base for info on how to set this up.
