How Do I Serve SeedCodeContacts for Multiple Users?
SeedCodeContacts is all set to be shared by multiple users. You can simply host the file on your FileMaker Pro Server or on your FileMaker 8x host in a peer-to-peer environment. This file ships with Sharing turned “on” for “all users”, though your copy of FileMaker may have Network Sharing “off”.
To review these settings go to FileMaker / Sharing / FileMaker Network.
Note that we highly recommend using FileMaker Pro Server, even for small numbers of users. The data protection and backup utilities offered by FileMaker 8 Pro Server are simply invaluable. Furthermore, FileMaker 8 puts more of the work onto the server and, in a peer-to-peer situation (where there is no server), that work is sent to the host machine, often putting it under a very large load and decreasing performance for all users.
