Hi all,

I'm situated in Durban (SA) and starting a project in collaboration with another architectural practice in Johannesburg, 600 kms away. We hope to be working on the same project (central file) in tandem, and this poses one or two major problems...

Is it possible for two or more users to access the same file remotely, and work on it at the same time via the net, as we would normally do in an office via a network? Is third-party software needed to make this happen? Anyone experienced in doing so?

Thanks!

Do you have a T1 between your offices?  I doubt it ... therefore the answer is you are in trouble.

 

You need to check into all the posts here and on AUGI as well as reading your help file on working remotely.

We use a vpn - it takes a while to open as this is not the location of the network, but once we do we save to desktop and then save to central as usual when done. seems to work well.

 using cisco vpn client

I'm yet to hear of anyone who successfully gets a save over the net to work... It is painfully slow no matter how fast your connection...

I recommend the VPN method.  The only issue is it requires vacant computers at the server end for people to connect to and work on...

Thanks all,

Those options are definitely worth a look at.
