Real-time replication across WAN?

Your post



Just wanted to know how to deploy real-time (or as near as possible) replication between two Filemaker (9) Servers over a WAN?  Latency when accessing the current single server via WAN from the second site is much too high and renders FMP clients at the remote site virtually unusable, so must set up a second server, but REQUIRE real-time replication between the two locations so all clients have access to the low latency of a LAN system with the latest data entered by either site.


This is NOT for a backup/archive solution but for a live FMP database that will be served by two remote FM server installations.


Ideally a scripted solution or built-in solution, but also a reasonably priced third-party solution would be fine. Would prefer not to use terminal services due to the significant added expense.
