Want to Share with Vista

I have a client with a small business and they use QuickBooks Pro 2008. They have a desktop computer and a laptop with a wireless connection. Both run Windows Vista. They want to share QuickBooks Pro 2008 and be able to edit and update information from both computers. I have installed QuickBooks Pro 2008 on both computers but I need to make sure the data is being shared. How do I do that?

Thank you!

Depending on which machine is going to host the Quickbooks Data file.
1. Browse to C:\Users\Public\Documents\Intuit & share the intuit folder enabling permissions for full control
2. Start the Quickbooks Database Manager and browse to C:\Users\Public\Documents then "Scan" for Quickbooks data Files
3. From the remote machine browse across the network to the machine hosting the Quickbooks data and launch by selecting Company file

You may have to open ports within your firewall to run properly

As it turns out the firewall was the issue.
