Trouble Connecting to local BCM database


B

BigDaddy

We are using a simple network, 2 computers and a router, neither computer is
acting as a server, both are being used as desktops. Both computers are
running the exact same version of Vista and Outlook, brand new puters. I
have setup a BCM database on Computer A (as User A, the admin) and gone
through the setup process under the "Share Database" wizard on that computer,
setting up a 2nd user (User B who will log in via Computer B) and given it a
simple temporary password.

When I go to Computer B and try to connect to the BCM database in Outlook,
it asks me under "Select an existing database" to enter the computer name and
"connect", when I go that it gives me the error message about resetting the
password, I then enter the temporary password and then enter User B's local
password and it tells me the password is an incorrect network password.
However, I can go the Networking page and access Computer A from Computer B
and enter the temporary password and Windows let's User B right in. There
must something else I am missing.

I have double-checked all the user names and passwords and tried deleting
the databases and users and still get the same message.

After resetting everything and going back through the setup process now I am
getting the error message "Cannot access the datebase server on computer X" I
went through the help suggestions and checked everything there and still the
same message. This is now gone beyond annoying and it's starting to cost me
money. I really don't want to go back to ACT but we have to get a database
going so I'm thinking we just maintain 2 BCMs and email/export updates back
and forth to each other as once our database is setup it won't change that
much...Does anyone know if that would work?
