Settings - Network

Don Lawson -

Your license allows you to install MILT 4 on every computer in your facility.  If desired, you can share one database between one or more computers. To set up networking:

  1. Create a folder on the network and make sure all MILT users have WRITE permissions to that folder
  2. Install MILT 4 on a local computer, or if you already have MILT 4 installed, start with the computer that has the best database first
  3. From Settings - Network, select the folder from step 1 and click Save.  MILT 4 will copy the database files to the network folder and connect this computer to the new location.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 on the rest of the computers - MILT 4 will see the existing database and connect to it.

Common Network Issues

Can not open database:

Make sure the user has WRITE permissions to that network folder, and that the path to the folder is mapped correctly.  You can use a UNC path if drive mappings are not consistent in your environment.

Slow Performance:

We strongly recommend that the network folder should be accessed via the LAN, not the WAN.  If the network folder is accessed over the WAN, and performance is poor, we suggest you move it to a location closer to the end users.
