database to be used by 2 remote users

P: n/a
I'm making a database using the Developer's Edition. The client will need 2
copies of the runtime edition, one for herself and one for her virtual
assistant located in another county. Both of these people are running
Windows XP. Instead of using replication to keep the two copies
synchornized, would it be possible to use Remote Access? So that the virtual
assistant would be actually updating the db on the main client's computer?
TIA

Yes, you can get remote access software that works across the Internet. I
haven't used it, but the prime contractor for whom I subcontracted in the
past used it for some adminstrator work on the client's system. He had both
pcAnywhere and ReachOut.

I was thinking that Windows XP Remote Access might do it, but third party
software wouldn't be out of the question. Thanks!

I haven't used Windows XP, except for some brief sessions on someone else's
machine, so I don't know the capabilities. Assuming it provides "remote
access" in a manner similar to the third-party products, I can't see why it
wouldn't work -- that is, you need something that transmits keystroke and
screen update information from/to the device where the user is located, and
runs the application on the device that is remote from the user.
Thanks!


You're welcome.

Keep in mind that two people can't use the PC at the same time,
since the user sitting at the PC has to be logged off in order to
allow the remote user to log on.
