I work for midsize manufacturer. Created bunch of solutions that are loved by users and management as well. But at this point Peer to Peer kills me completely because can't have sharing or multi user access to the data base (subnets). Backups now are done manually. (suks). IT gives me a zero suport suggesting using standard company tools like SAP, SQL, etc. Problem is I don't know enough of those tools and IT offers zero help. Can I connect a regular desktop set up by our IBM folks (setup a domain) and that way use such desktop as a server. I can't map any computer (and subnets barriers are not an issue) but that way I could only see tfis desktop as a drive on the network?
Plese tell me since all the guides cover very little of hardware setup. I don't need any websharing, just access a db by worker that is on the master machine (server FM installed).
I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.
