Network Installation Issue

Hi everyone!
I have two computers with Windows XP Home edition and Wireless Network. I 
want to install RMS 2.0 and use one of them to store the database and act as 
a register and the second one only as a register. How do I set this up? I 
installed RMS on both of them and SQL Express on database server. But I 
cannot connect to the database from the second computer.
Thank you in advance for all replies.

Hi,
You probably need to share the drive. You will want to make sure your 
wireless network is secure.  Do you already have the RMS 2.0?  If so you 
might want to contact the partner from whom you got it. Regardless, If you 
have specific questions post them here or email them to me at 
billc@systemsource.us

 Try to use a wired router for security reasons only.

Check your network conenctions and make sure the computers can talk over the 
network themselves make sure you can Ping each other. there is no need to 
share the drive for RMS its all done via SQL. If you are unable to conenct 
to the server try using the server IP and not name in windows. Also it maybe 
a XP Home versusu XP pro issue but check networking communications between 
the 2 pcs first

You do not need to share any drive.  you can create ODBC and chack it is 
talking with the other computer.  try ping each outher for comunication. if 
you need network help please contact me.

Thank you all. I finally managed to do it. I had to make IP address static 
and use it instead of server name.

Contract Date Issue
Basically, you create a contract normally. However, when you go to add a contract line, you get a date error. Apparently, the system thinks that the contract line start and/or end dates are outside the contract start and end dates, even though the contract line defaults to the using the contract start and end dates (i.e. the dates on the line match those on the contract). I know this must be a data type issue with the datetime values. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a fix? On Mon, 31 Oct 2005 15:08:14 -0500, "Tim Powers" <tim.powers@rimrock.com> wrote: ...

Windows Wireless Wizard Cannot Find any Networks
It's a Sony Vaio laptop running Windows XP Professional and I use a PCMCIA wireless adapter to connect it to the router. This has worked perfectly for years but suddenly there's a problem. The wireless adapter comes with its own management utility which includes the option to let the utility or Windows manage the wireless connection. If I let the utility do it then it detects and connects to the network and a connected and firewalled connection appears in Network Connections. The wireless connection wizard, however, fails to find any network and no programs on the comp...

Sidebar issue
I recently had to do a complete system reset back to factory defaults. I've spent two days downloading and installing all the various updates and getting things back the way I liked them. I do like using some of the gadgets in Windows Sidebar, but unfortunately they are displayed much bigger icon size than the other icons on my desktop. Changing the desktop area or dpi or resolution changes the size/etc of all the other icons on the desktop, but doesn't affect the sidebar gadget sizes at all. Any suggestions?
