Has anyone out there every migrated ACT! 2009 from SBS 2003 to SBS 2011?  Old software I know, but I'm trying to help a friend who still uses this.

Essentially I've successfully installed and registered ACT! On the SBS 2011 server and moved all data across from the SBS 2003 server.  I can connect to ACT on the SBS 2011 server locally, but cannot get it working over the network.  Any ideas?

I have a new installation, running ACT!2016 Pro on a Windows Server 2012 r2 box.  The Database is on a local drive and I am attempting to run a daily backup of the database via the ACT Scheduler.  On the Server, I have setup any number of Back up tasks, logged on as an Administrator in both Windows and ACT, to no avail.  
The software is installed onto the C: partition/drive and the database sits on the main partition/drive F:.
Any thoughts or ideas?

Thanks!

We have just Installed Act V18 on our company network PC's
We installed a New Windows 10 Enterprise PC called SRV-ACT as the main ACT PC and installed ACT and our database on this.
Database folder is shared with all Domain Users having full control over the share.
The other PC's on our domain are a mix of 2 year old Windows 7 Pro and NEW Windows 10 Enterprise PCs (all 64bit).
On these PCs we did a custom install and installed Act without SQL server (there is no need for local DBs).
Every PC on our network can run Act, open the shared database, view and add attachments without a problem.

Apart from 1 Windows7 PC - called DEV-PC.
This PC always gets the error : 1434 which indicates that port UDP 1434 or TCP Port 1433 is blocked.
The main difference between this PC and the others is it's a development machine and has the following installed:
SQL Server 2008R2 Management Studio and Visual Studio 2012 which installs a whole raft of SQL 2012 utils.

I spent an hour onto Act Support and they dialed into DEV-PC and SRV-ACT and could not fix the problem as they said it was a Firewall issue.
They tried the usual, changing PAD file to IP address, deleting PAD file using ADF file, Setting permissions on shares to everyone etc.
At the time they could not disable the Windows Domain firewall to check it.
I have since done this from GP by giving all domain users the ability to turn off domain firewall and turned off the firewall on DEV-PC and the SRV-ACT PC

I've confirmed …
