Remote Access speed issue

    I have an Access database executable that runs on an off-site computer
    connected to my server via vpn. Alls well with the connections but it is VERY
    slow. I know this is one of the downsides to using Access but does anyone
    have a solution to this? Would using an sql database back end speed this up
    to real time as if in the office?

    Thanks

    If you are using the VPN to gain access to the remote network and are then
    running the app with a copy of Access on your local PC, then you're right.
    That will be a terribly slow way to go and it runs a high risk of corrupting
    the file.

    Instead you could set up a Terminal Server at the remote location and run
    the Access app remotely from your location on that server. Then all of the
    Access processing and i/o stays on the remote LAN and the only thing that
    goes over the VPN is the screen updates and keyboard/mouse inputs. In most
    cases a setup like this is virtually indistinguishable from running the app
    on the LAN itself.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
