Hi Yardman1,

Gopher can be set up to handle that configuration. However, it was not designed to handle mulitple users entering data at the same time (e.g. you won't see much of the other user's data entry until your session or transaction restarts). It's ideal for a business owner who has two computers and mainly uses one at a time for data entry. To access the data on another computer you must have a Gopher shortcut on your
desktop whose target looks like this:

program_path local_fullpath_to_filename_on_server server_ip_address

for example:
"C:\Program Files\Ditech\Gopher 2003\Gopher2003.exe" "C:\Program Files\Ditech\Gopher
2003\Gopher2003.gdb" 192.168.0.44

Remember though, if you are trying to network your desktop and laptop with your data residing on your desktop, when you take your laptop off the network you will have no data on your laptop and you will get an error.

Is there anyway that you can have it on both computers with a network and not loose you data, and keep them both updated. If that made any sense.

Hi Yardman1,

If they are always going to be on the network then the above information will be fine. If you are going to plug into a network and then unplug from a network you might be better off just backing up the data from one and restoring it to the other.

Hello tech support,

Here is what I want to do, I just got a laptop (notebook) I already have gopher 2004 on our desk top and I was wanting to primarly use the laptop (notebook) for business, not sure if it will be easier or not. I do I transfer Gopher 2004 to my notebook (laptop) with out loosing everything. I do have the computers networked using a router. But in chance that I ever do get a vacation I will have to bring the schedule along with me.

Thanks in advance,
Jennifer Hernandez

Hi cuacua3 ,

Please review this Frequently Asked Questions page.

There are a bunch of posts on how to transfer your data.

If this doesn't help and you are still stuck. Let me know.

Hello,

I still do can't find the way to network them. I was wondering if It might be easier if I took everything from desktop and transfered it to my laptop. Could you send me instructions on both.

Thanks again,

Cuacua3

Hi Cuacua3,

If you want to transfer your data from one computer to the other, my previous post will help you back up your data and then restore it to the new computer.

If you want to network Gopher, the instructions are above in the post to Yardman1.
