I have never had luck with Omnis DF access across the net. Assuming windows (as I am not familiar with mac) We are using windows server RDP and I use a company that gives a great price, excellent service and much of their software is customized and internet servers are unix based. Contact me off list if you want me to put you in touch with them or just have questions. If you are dealing with 6 users or more needing to work remote I don't think you can beat them. jime at ediconcepts.net

With the latency of the internet, do you think it is a wise thing to connect to the ODB via VPN over the internet?
We have had many 3rd party IT “professionals” attempt this when our mutual clients have requested to move to work from home, they have been able to do it, but the clients always complain about the speed of the connection and we see many datafiles get corrupted because of the way ODB handles sharing with high latency.
Of course this might just be an Omnis Classic issue and Studio might work with ODB differently, but I still ponder the question.
