I'm helping out a friend and helping him implement his new accounting software for his small business. The office currently has 5 computers. I have purchased MYOB Premier (3 user) and plan to install it on 3 computers.
I want to set it up so that all computers can access and make changes to the Company File in real time. So if computer A updates the accounts, computers B and C should be able to see those changes (and make changes themselves). Is this even possible?
I plan on using a NAS and mapping the share on each of the computers as a network drive and then set up MYOB so that the data file is stored to the mapped network drives.
Would this work?
I have set up NASs before (Synology DS410) but mostly for media streaming solutions, I am inexperienced when it comes to accounting software such as MYOB.
I plan on getting a 2 bay Synology or Qnap NAS.
- The office LAN is connected a D-link gigabit/wireless N router(+ADSL modem built in) and a fast ethernet d-link switch. All the computers are connected via cables so wifi will not be used for MYOB purposes.
Can anyone offer any advice or guidance regarding my set up?
- I realize that a NAS is not a backup solution, I am using a NAS so that multiple users on the network can access the MYOB files, I plan to backup the data files from the NAS weekly or something to a external hard drive.
