Installed ACT 2008 Ver 10 on Server and 5 workstations. The database is located on the server and I setup sharing for the stations. The users also want to be able to use their laptops when they are out of the office and have access to the contacts in the database. I setup a sync set and installed it in my laptop for testing. All syncs will be done locally in the office upon their return. When I attempt to sync I get the message "ACT! is unable to connect to the sync server. Check to be sure "accept incoming sync" is enabled in the main database and that the Network sync service is running. Also be sure you are connected to your network....."
Accept incoming syncs is on and the network is visible. Not sure how to "Make sure the network sync service is running"
Also tried to telnet to that server and port as suggested in another ee post that I found. When I do the telnet 192.168.0.6 65100 I get ..."Connecting To 192.168.0.6...Could not open connection to the host, on port 65100: Connect Failed.
I know I am missing something but I am not sure what - suggestions please.
