    Default NETWORKING

    I have aplpha4v7 and need to network it. The network I have now runs very slow. Should I get a server or is peer to peer ok to use. I am networking 5 computers.Thanks for any help.

    Default RE: NETWORKING

    I have a 3 user network, P2P. I had been using a hub and switched to a switch. That seemed to improve things. It does seem like some forms recall data slowly, more slow than what I'd like, but I know those forms do many lookups and dbsum calculations. I'm not familiar with working with a server so I can't offer any advice there. I recall reading a post somewhere that someone was using P2P win 98 network and was experiecing problems. They installed everything on a Win2K server; that corrected the problems. Don't know why.
