Haynes Posted January 23, 2005 Share Posted January 23, 2005 I need to tap the collective wisdom re: good ways to provide FM database access to remote users who will be entering data, searching, etc., and possibly modifying the structure of the database (adding or modifying tables, fields, calculations, scripts, etc.) The remote users will be one of the following flavors: 1) running FMP7 on a desktop OSX Mac or Windows XP machine from home with high speed Internet access; or 2) running FMP7 on the road with a OS X Mac or Windows XP laptop and who knows what access speed (but will have a Sprint Vision cell phone account). The database of interest is currently hosted via FMP7 peer-to-peer sharing on an eMac (1.25Gz G4, 768MB of DDR SDRAM, relatively fast drives) dedicated to serving the database and lots of files to about 4 concurrent users all running FMP7 and OSX and connected via a 100Mbps ethernet LAN that sits behind a firewall running on a Dual-WAN router coupling the LAN via both a DSL modem and a cable modem (each with a dynamically assigned IP address) to the Internet. I have also recently obtained a low-end Dell 3000 (P4, 2.8GHz, 512MB DDR SDRAM, 80GB Ultra ATA 7200RPM hard drive) that I hope to connect to my LAN to serve PC applications to the Mac users via a remote control program such as Timbuktu, Microsoft Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
