    Unanswered: System choice

    Hi all,

    I am new to posting in this forum as usually I have been able to find the answers I need just by searching.

    I am considering redeveloping a system that I built some time ago. I built the original system with MSAccess, the system is for a small business, it's working fine at the moment, however, a lot has been added to it so I think it's about time to clean it up a bit and add any other functionality they might want.

    One of the main things that they were looking to do was access the system remotely, it's currently in use over a 3 computer network.

    What I was really wondering is has anyone got any suggestions about how I can make it remotely accessible. As I am going to redevelop it, suggestions of doing it with a different system would also be an option.

    Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, HRG

    Consider getting Citrix. I've had good luck with Citrix and accessing Access applications via Citrix (as well as other applications). But Citrix is a bit expensive. You could also consider Terminal Server services which is free with Microsoft.

    thanks for the help guys.

    Is Citrix a remote desktop like realVNC is?

    The only thing that bothers me about this is the pc being out of use when someone if logged in via Citrix

    Citrix is not like VNC, its more like Microsoft RDP (Remote Desktop), so, if you have some kind of server edition of windows you can have several sessions simultaneously.
