iMagic Inventory can be used on a network by several users at once.
You would install the software onto each PC that needs it. Then designate one as the main/server PC, this then shares it's database with the other
PCs on the network.
It takes a few steps to setup the network feature. As follows:
Install the software onto the server, this will then be the central database. Configure and setup the system and other details as
Still on the server, create a share to the folder in which you installed the software. You can do this in Windows 2000 by right
clicking on the folder and selecting Sharing. You'll then want to give full read and write access.
Install the software onto each workstation (don't run it just yet).
On each workstation run the Network Administration program. Follow the wizard and set the database path to the share that was created on the server.
You can now run the software on each workstation and it will use the database on the server.
· You can also share the database over the internet. To do this you'll need to install the software on a server version of Windows, such as Windows 2000 Server or Windows 2003 Server. You can then create a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to connect the PCs together.
