Client wants me to Develop several Crystal Reports for his company that he will be able to run, refresh and export as pdf file when he needs.
He has running company network where he has SQL Server database on network server.
I am wondering how is the best to do this remotely.
As I am developer and working from remote site (home) what is the best option to do that.
He has installed Cristal Report 2011 on one of his PC on his network(not server version just one user license), I have on my laptop CR 2008.
I assume that connection should go over VPN.
As it is first time for me to do development from remote site. My question is should I have VPN access to his PC which has installed Crystal Report on it and create,run and save report to server folder.
Or I could connect from my laptop to his database on server create report on my laptop and save it to his shared folder on his company network. In that case not sure how data source location will be when he try to run it, will it be different for him and for me when I was creating report from my laptop. In that case should he reconnect data source first then run report??
Can you give me best suggestion how to do this as this is new for me completely?
