    P2P (2000)

    Just a general question about what to avoid or provide for in an Access P2P environment (aside from not doing it at all).
    BTW, I'm having a miserable time getting the P2P to even work, but that belongs in a different forum. See <post#=266576>post 266576</post#> if you can help.

    Thanks!

    Is peer to peer all you have for networking? The biggest problem is going to be the mapping for any paths involved, since something on *your* C: drive, won't be on C: if someone else is trying to use it.

    Unfortunately, yes. I just have a small home-based business that occasionally needs some part-time help. This is not the best economic environment to be making capital investments, so I thought I'd give P2P a go for now. Alas, I can't even get that to work though. Just about to the point of abandoning ship on the whole idea - can't even share a printer!

    Probably the most important issue in this case is the operating system on the 2 pcs. So it really isn't an Access question (yet). Also, what medium are you using to connect the two computers? There are folks who deal with this kind of stuff regularly - myself included - so we should be able to help you sort out the problems.

    Thanks for the ear my friend, good to hear from you again. Perhaps you could take a look at my <post#=266739>post 266739</post#> and see what I have going here. That would also move it off the Access board <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>

    Thanks
