Yes you can use iMagic Hotel on two PCs at once and share the same database. You can find details on setting this up in the FAQ at:

Any required file locking is done automatically.

If the users don't need to update at the same time (ie in "real time") then yes you could do that. Otherwise to have them both updating at the same time you'd need a direct network connection between the two locations.

Jon,

Could I put the database on a SkyDrive so that my computer at home and the motel can see the data?

Thanks,
Karen

Hi Karen,

If you want to access the system from the motel and from home at the same time then you would want to setup a "Virtual Private Network" between the locations. Once you've done that you can share the hotel database as normal:

Skydrive would work only if you don't need access on both the motel and home at the same time.

Regards, Jon

Can I set up access via icloud/Box/DropBox so that I can access my business reservation system when I am at home?

Thanks!

Hi Karen,

Yes, you can, the situation is the same as that for Skydrive. You would not be able to use iMagic Hotel on both PCs at the same time. If you want to use them at the same time then you would need to create the VPN I mentioned in the earlier thread.

Most likely you would also want to ensure you had a 2 user license.

Regards, Jon
