Remote Client

Big Business Professional Edition and higher support Remote Clients. Instead of using screen sharing or using remote desktop, you can run your Big Busines Client remotely.

Big Business Server has built-in features for encryption and file sharing. Connect your Big Business Client and security and document sharing are enabled without using VPN.

To allow a Remote Client to connect, your company needs to enable network access. You will be given an Internet Address to connect to from Custom tab in your Client.

  Connecting Remote Client

When you launch Big Business Client it displays any locally available Big Business Server on the Available tab. To connect to a remote Server enter a Name and IP Address on the Custom tab.

2. On the Connection dialog, click the Custom tab
3. Enter any name and the Server's IP address.
4. Click the OK button to connect.
5. Wait while resource files are copied from the server, which may be a few minutes.

If the connection fails:
6. Check your Network settings.
7. Check with your network administrator that Ports 19813 and 19814 are open if a Firewall is in place.

If performance is too slow:
