Peachtree 2007 premium won't connect to gateway server on IP address
Posted on 2006-11-01
When i try to open up Peachtree 2007 i get an error saying the "Your Peachtree gateway server is unavailable. Please make sure the gateway computer is logged in or that the database service is running. Click retry when the gateway is available or Cancel current operation."
I know the server is logged in and the database service is running because other people can get into Peachtree. The datapath for Peachtree is set to X: which is mapped to the server by IP. Previously, X: was pathed to the server by UNC name which works and is the way the other users are setup. However, i need it to path by IP because this user works from home and UNC doesn't work from home, but IP does over the VPN. Does anyone have any idea why Peachtree doesn't like using an IP as opposed to UNC and how i can fix this. I'm about ready to give up and buy a support plan with Peachtree for 300 bucks but thought EE might be able to help me.
