Hi experts

Need your advice over peachtree path, I have two computer installed with peachtree  one acting as server and other as a client
I need to change the path of peachtree database to NAS, Over computer which is acting as peachtree server. Can I do this ?if I change the path do I have to make any changes in INF file.

Advantage I see in doing this is that  my client computer will be independent of peachtree server. If my peachtree server is not powered p then atleast client peachtree can access the database.

Kindly advice if this is achievable.

Thanks

I wouldn't change the INI file. I'd run a backup of the company files, then create a share on the Nas, restore the company files on the Nas and then open the company file on the other Pc after connecting to the Nas share.

So its simply copy all company files and create shared folder on NAS and restore to NAS shared folder and connect both computer with new NAS shared path. I am correct?

By doing so my computer acting as client peachtree will be independent of peachtree server.

Kindly advice. its peachtree 2011 with single user license

No, in Peachtree, you run a Backup of the Company file. Copy that backup to the shared folder on the nas and run a restore there.

In PeachTree help, look up Backup and Restore. It should be explained there.

By doing it so my computer acting as peachtree  client will still work if my computer which was acting as peachtree server is switched off?
