This article explores ways to work with client data from a remote location. Synchronizing data between two or more computers in an office is a simple task when the computers are hooked up in a local area network. The data resides in a single location on the central file server and there accessing software allows multiple users to work with data at the same time. But once one makes an additional copy of the data for a non-networked computer, synchronization becomes a real problem. The remote node access allows users to check e-mail, copy a file to and from the notebook and make changes in the central database. But for this to happen all data must pass over the slow modem connection to the notebook where it is evaluated by the software running on the notebook. This means that to look at a set of transactions for a client's asset, each transaction must be transmitted over the modem. It also means the notebook computer must be powerful enough to run all the software needed to access data. Another way to work with client data is to use a software package to control a computer in the office on the network by modem from a remote site. The software effectively extends the office computer's keyboard and monitor to a remote location.
