How do I share and network 2 computers with Quickbooks
I have never done anything like this before, and I have read and read the instructions found online. I just want to make sure I am doing everything correctly.... the two computers I am trying to set up together are 100 miles apart...and its only me doing this, so I have to make the drive and dont want to do it more than once.
first off, I have QB Pro 2011. I have set it up for multi-user mode. I have added the additional user profile.
1. What is the next step? Do I need to purchase the additional license now? or first install QB on the network computer first?
2. How do i install QB on the second computer if I purchased to download the upgrade to 2011? (i don't have a hard copy of the program)
3. Do I map the networked computer to the drive or do I do this on the local host computer?
I can figure out everything else on my own... its just getting these two computers in to network correctly is my concern.... I dont want to have to drive back and forth as these two computers are 100 miles apart.
