Networking Sage Peach tree 2011

New Client has Peach tree on Two Computers  One is acting as server

Their idea was to use the second as a client computer so two users can be working on it at the same time.

The Client computer is not pointing to the Server Computer.

is there a Utility I have to run to get the client to communicate with server computer?

Yes.  I believe it is called Sage 50/Peachtree Connector.  You should be able to get it from their website or installation media.

Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

Bill BachPresident and Btrieve GuruCommented:
The Peachtree Connector is used to connect OTHER applications to the Sage database.  If you are using PeachTree to connect, then you essentially have two pieces to set up.  First, make sure that you have a version of PeachTree which supports multiple users.  Check the installation instructions (or do a quick web search) for directions that may be specific to your specific install version.  If not found, the process should be fairly straightforward: Configure PeachTree on each machine normally.  Create a new folder for the data and share it out from the "server" (the machine with the data).  Save your database files to that location.  On the second machine (not the server), map the shared drive and open the files from that location.

The other side of things is making sure that the database is able to connect.  As Sage installs a crippled version of PSQL, many of the diagnostic tools are missing.  However, you can do two things to verify that the network is correct for the database.  First, ping the server by name from the client machine.  This is done from a command prompt with "PING SERVERNAME" where SERVERNAME is the computer name of the server.  This should succeed, and (more importantly) it should return the IP address of the server.  Second, from the same command prompt, "TELNET SERVERNAME 3351".  This should return a black screen with no errors.  If so, then your database engine is responding and reachable on the server.  If you get something bad with either of these tests, then you need to fix that first.  Disable firewalls, if needed, or at least open holes for the database TCP ports 3351/1583.
Should be done in the client setup install.
It should ask you during the install if you want to run as client or server,you pick client,it will then ask you for the server path.
You need to map a drive to the server where the Peachtree database is stored (IE Z:\Peachtree\company)and then point the install to that data path .
