How to link several work stations in a local network
LibertyCommerce can be used from several connected work stations. However,
there should not be linked more than 5 work stations in a local network.
You only have to install a copy of the software on all work stations you want to connect. After your registration you received a customer number, which you have to insert now (the same number for all work stations). Now you need to follow the instructions:
1. You have to select a work station which is to contain the database.
On this work station you have to create your company and after that set
the directory, so that also the other connected work stations can see
Now you have to search for the common directory in which the file libertycommerce.mdb
This procedure works for all the work stations you want to link.
All changes effected from one of the connected work stations are visible also on the main work station. In that way you can, for example, stock up your inventory from one work station and issue an invoice or effect a public sale from another.
The computer on which the database is saved needs to be switched on, of course, in order to be able to use the other work stations.
If you have a network server and want to insert the database in a directory of this server, you need to do the following steps:
1.Create the directory on the server and grant the user of the computer
of access the different licences and authorizations.
N.B. During the process described above, in which you need to use a computer linked in the network as database medium, you have to consider the following guidelines:
If the computer, on which the database is saved, has Windows XP Professional as operating system, it is not enough to share the directory. Writing licences and access authorisations for the directory have to be issued to the user of the computer, otherwise the second work station cannot work properly.
