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.
