All versions of ERPlite enable you to have unlimited users accessing the
datafile at the same time. There are a variety of ways of installing multi-user
ERPlite. First, the physical (ie non-cloud) methods of creating multi-user
ERPlite are described, to allow easy understanding of the benefits of
To run ERPlite in a peer-to-peer network, you must have Windows XP or later
installed on each PC.
Each user computer has its own copy of ERPlite installed. The ERPlite
data file is located on only one computer.
Client-server networks have a computer dedicated to sharing files,
printers or other resources. In a client-server network, you will most likely
put the ERPlite datafile on the server in a folder accessible by all computers
that need to use ERPlite.
For best performance, the ERPlite datafile should be in the root directory or
a directory folder (ie don't bury the datafile many levels down the folder
hierarchy). The file server does not need to have ERPlite frontend installed on
it (ie it does not count as a user).
Terminal Server (or Citrix) Network
To run ERPlite in terminal server environment, you must have
Windows 200x Server along with client access licenses for multiple users.
ERPlite is installed on a centralized terminal server PC, and licensed users
from remote locations can user ERPlite without having ERPlite installed on their
remote PC. Windows Terminal Services enables remote users to access ERPlite over
lower bandwidth connections (like VPN or dialup). Since all the processing is
done on the server, network traffic is dramatically reduced (only the
bitmap screens are transferred over the network), resulting in better
Quickbooks can be hosted in the same Server as ERPlite.
