    Unanswered: Access over VPN

    Hello all,

    I am a noob at databases and truthfully am not setting up a database, but facilitating the transition to a server-based database for a company. I have contacted a programmer who has made programs for this company in the past. He is very good at making Access based single and multi user programs. When I explained to him I needed a central searchable database accessible via VPN he wasn't sure if he can do it. His main hang up is if Access databases can be accessed via VPN. Is this not possible in which case I will need to search for an alternative method? Or will it work? If it will, what needs to be done differently?

    Here's a great paper by Albert Kallal on the subject:

    MS Access on a WAN?
    Hope this helps!

    The problem with making anything foolproof...is that fools are so darn ingenious!
