PCAnyWhere Alternative ?
Posted on 2004-10-28
I have an application (Point of sale) that is installed in over 30 locations.
those locations "connect" to the main office via pcanywhere (auto-transfer) to transfer over
their data and get the updates from the main office
the data being transfered from the pos to the main office is around 1.mb and from the main office
to the pos about 2 mb.
1-for some reason , the aut-transfer from time to time fail to run properly (only 1 part of it runs)
and troubleshooting this issue many times has not led me into a solution.the only way was to
delete the auto-xref and re-create it. don't ask I dont know why !
2- for some other obscure reason , sometimes the auto-transfer re-transfers files that are already been transfered
(even though the speedsend check box is marked...)
so I have come to a point where I am really considering another product for that.
any help ?
I have been using pcanwhere versions 8, 9-2, and 10-5
(pos machines are almost all win95 & win98)
any recommendation ?
