Hello

I want to put my program database (Paradox 7) on the server so two w/s will use it the same time.

Do I need to make special confiuration, besides maping the alias to the server?

Thanks,
Saar

hi saar2,

1. the .NET file must pointed to a shared networkdrive, exact the same entry for each client. (bde-admin/Configuration/Drivers/native/paradox: entry NET DIR)

2. the path in the alias-configuration must have exact the same entry for each client.

thats all
good luck

hi saar,

the .NET file is a control-file, where the paradox-engine stores the table-states and connections.
