Access is never good for multi-user with more than about 10 users! MS say: use SQL server. Of course, it all depends on the complexity of the app, the amount of data, transaction rate etc. You can also try putting the backend on a "real" server (15K rpm SCSI or sSCSI disc, Xeon CPU) and give it as much RAM as you can afford (at least 4GB) then you might get reasonable performance. If you can't do it any other way & a licence for MS SQL Server is out of the question, use MySQL as a backend: you can make Access clients talk to it as there is a free Access driver for it. You can even run MySQL under windows: you don't need Linux (although it will run faster under Linux). Setting it up is fairly easy and it will outperform an Access backend by at least an order of magnitude, if not 2 or 3 :)

What's a homegroup?

A homegroup is a group of PCs on a home network that can share files and printers. Using a homegroup makes sharing easier. You can share pictures, music, videos, documents, and printers with other people in your homegroup.
You can help protect your homegroup with a password, which you can change at any time. Other people can't change the files that you share unless you give them permission to do so.
After you create or join a homegroup, you select the libraries (for example, My Pictures or My Documents) that you want to share. You can prevent specific files or folders from being shared, and you can share additional libraries later.
HomeGroup is available in Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, and Windows 7. You can join a homegroup on a PC running Windows RT 8.1, but you can't create a homegroup or share content with the homegroup. In Windows 7Starter and Windows 7Home Basic, you can join a homegroup, but you can't create one.

Create a homegroup

  1. Open HomeGroup by typing homegroup in the search box on the taskbar, and then selecting HomeGroup.
  2. Select Create a homegroup > Next.
  3. Select the libraries and devices you want to share with the homegroup, and then select Next.
  4. A password will appear-print it or write it down. You'll need this password to add other PCs to your homegroup.
  5. Select Finish.
  • If a homegroup already exists on your network, you'll be asked to join it instead of creating a new one.
  • If your PC belongs to a domain, you can join a homegroup but you can't create one. You can get to libraries and devices on other homegroup PCs, but you can't share your own libraries and devices with the homegroup.
  • You can join a homegroup on a PC running Windows RT 8.1, but you can't create a homegroup or share content with the homegroup.
After you create a homegroup, other PCs running Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, or Windows 7 on your network can join it.

Add your other PCs to the homegroup

After someone on your network creates a homegroup, the next step is to join it. You'll need the homegroup password, which you can get from any homegroup member. All user accounts except the Guest account will belong to the homegroup. Each person controls access to his or her own libraries.
To join a homegroup, follow these steps on the PC that you want to add to the homegroup:
  1. Open HomeGroup by typing homegroup in the search box on the taskbar, and then selecting HomeGroup.
  2. Select Join now > Next.
  3. Select the libraries and devices you want to share with the homegroup, and then select Next.
  4. Type the homegroup password in the box, and then select Next.
  5. Note
    If you don't see a space to enter a password, there might not be a homegroup available. Make sure that someone has created a homegroup, or you can create a homegroup yourself.
  6. Select Finish.

Find homegroup files

PCs that belong to your homegroup will appear in File Explorer.
To get to shared libraries on other homegroup PCs
  1. Open File Explorer, by typing file explorer in the search box in the taskbar, and then selecting File Explorer.
  2. Under Homegroup, select the user account name of the person whose libraries you want to get to.
  3. In the file list, double-tap or double-click the library you want to get to, and then double-tap or double-click the file or folder you want.
PCs that are turned off, hibernating, or asleep won't be available as part of the homegroup.
If you've made homegroup files or folders available offline, and then you disconnect from the network, the files or folders will no longer be visible in the Libraries window. To find them, open the Network folder.

Share libraries and devices, or stop sharing them

When you create or join a homegroup, you select the libraries and devices you want to share with other people in the homegroup. Libraries are initially shared with Read access, which means that other people can look at or listen to what's in the library, but they can't change the files in it. You can adjust the level of access at any time, and you can exclude specific files and folders from sharing.
Only those people who belong to the homegroup can see shared libraries and devices. You can choose to share libraries, devices, or individual files and folders with specific people in your homegroup or with everyone.
Keep in mind that children who use homegroup PCs will have access to all shared libraries and devices. To share devices and entire libraries
  1. Open HomeGroup by typing homegroup in the search box on the taskbar, and then select HomeGroup.
  2. Select Change what you're sharing with the homegroup.
  3. Select the libraries and devices you want to share with homegroup, and then select Next > Finish.
To share individual files or folders
  1. Open File Explorer by typing file explorer in the search box in the taskbar, and then selecting File Explorer.
  2. Select the item, and then select the Share tab.
  3. Choose an option in the Share with group. There are different Share with options depending on whether your PC is connected to a network and what kind of network it is.
    • To share items with a particular person, choose that person's account.
    • To share with all the members of your homegroup, choose one of the Homegroup options. (Select libraries to share with all the members of your homegroup by opening HomeGroup.)
    • To prevent a file or folder from being shared with anyone, select the Share tab, and then select Stop sharing.
    • To change the level of access to a file or folder, select the Share tab, and then select either Homegroup (view) or Homegroup (view and edit).
    • If you need to share a location such as a drive or system folder, select the Advanced sharingoption.

Share a printer

Printers that are connected with a USB cable can be shared with a homegroup. After the printer is shared, you can get to it through the Print dialog box in any program, just like a printer that's directly connected to your PC.
To share or stop sharing your printer with the homegroup
  1. Open HomeGroup by typing homegroup in the search box on the taskbar, and then select HomeGroup.
  2. Select Change what you're sharing with the homegroup.
  3. Next to Printers & Devices, select Shared or Not shared (this will be set to Shared by default).
  4. Select Next > Finish.
To print to a homegroup printer Open the Print menu of the app you want to print from (like Microsoft Word), select the homegroup printer, and then select Print.
The PC that the printer is connected to must be turned on to use the printer.

Change homegroup settings if needed

At any time after you set up your homegroup, you can change settings by following these steps:
  1. Open HomeGroup by typing homegroup in the search box on the taskbar, and then select HomeGroup.
  2. Select the settings you want.
These are the settings you can change:
Setting Description Change what you're sharing with the homegroup Select the libraries, printers, and devices you want to share with your homegroup. Allow all devices on this network such as TVs and game consoles to play my shared content Use this setting to share content with all devices on your network. For example, you can share pictures with a digital picture frame, or share music with a network media player.
Shared content isn't secure. Anyone connected to your network can receive your shared content. View or print the homegroup password View the password for your homegroup. If someone else wants to join the homegroup, give them this password. Change the password Change your homegroup password. All other PCs in your homegroup will need to type in the new password you generate. Leave the homegroup Leave your homegroup. You can't delete a homegroup, but if everyone leaves the homegroup it will be gone. You can then set up a new homegroup if you'd like. Change advanced sharing settings Change network discovery, file and printer sharing, HomeGroup connection, and advanced security options.

Have you ever had any music, video, photo, or document files you wished you...

Have you ever had any music, video, photo, or document files you wished you could share easily between the various computers in your native Mac OS X network with ease? How about if you could share files just the same with a mixed network consisting of Macs and PCs? Or vise-versa?

Well now, there is a simple tool you can use, where you don't have to look so far or spend enormous amounts of time and energy, setting up complex file sharing infrastructure within your network. Well.. I mean you can if you want to...

But if you like, me, with a mixed network of Macs and PCs I could do that, but I don't really want to contribute that time unnecessarily.

That is how I found Dropbox.

Dropbox, is an online backup and file syncing service, that is quite easy to setup on any computer or laptop you have, Mac, PC, Linux, or even the iPhone. Once you have downloaded and installed it on your computers, literally in less than 5 minutes for each computer, you will be sharing files in no time.
So how do you get started in Dropbox?

It is an extremely simple 4-step process.

1.) Go to the website and you will immediately be greeted, with a landing page, that automatically shouts "Download Me Now!" to you.

Download Link:

Once you visit the home page, this is what you will see:

2.) Download Dropbox

3.) Install Dropbox

4.) Start dragging files, folders and applications into Dropbox

It is as simple as that!

Once Dropbox is installed on your Mac or PC, just look on the Apple menu bar (for Mac) or the System Tray (for Windows) and you will see a small distinctive little box which looks like this:


But that little box, leads to ways of being able to do big things for file sharing and even backing up some key files or folders from your Mac. Very easy to open and access...

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} This window, all you will need to access and use your Dropbox:


To get a Dropbox account, all you need is an email account to setup Dropbox on your computer or laptop.

You are even able to setup a free 2 Gig account and if you feel you will need more space, because you enjoy using dropbox more than you realized, you can upgrade to the monthly Pro 50 (50 Gigs of space) or Pro 100 (100 Gigs of space) Dropbox plans, for low prices ranging from $9.99 to $19.99 a month respectively.
For now however, just to get a feel of this great online backup and file syncing service, try the free 2 Gig plan and see for yourself, why I am recommending this service as a great solution to your file sharing woes between your computers within your network.

Since using this sharing application, I have not had any issues with sharing files, folders or applications of any kind with any of my computers with Dropbox installed.

Real case and point:

At anytime, if I want to drop a movie into my daughter's Dropbox on her Power Mac from my iMac, I simply drop the movie into my Dropbox folder and let her know. She then checks her Dropbox and in moments, she has her movie to now watch at her leisure.

Dropbox is simple to use and surprisingly fast in transferring files.

Of course the file transfer from Dropbox is contingent upon the power and RAM capacity of your Mac(s) or PC(s) as well as your network bandwidth and connection speeds, but once you experience Dropbox and its file sharing efficiency for yourself, you will get the full picture.

I hope this Mac OS X File Share tip from Fixya support will prove beneficial to you. However, if you don't try Dropbox, how will you know what it can do to enhance your general file sharing experiences positively?

Thanks for reviewing this Mac Fixya Tip!

What are the frontend and backend of any Android application?

Let me make it clear what is front end and what is backend:
Front-end :
  1. Its all about what a user able to see.
  2. It's may be buttons, images, layout, input field etc.
  3. To design these components in android you need XML and Android programming. Therefore these programming are called front-end programming.
Back-end :
  1. Backend of anything is not visible to general user or administrator. It can be a peice of code or a program running on the server machine to serve the user need.
  2. Generally PHP works well as backend languages in website or android application.
  3. Suppose, a user requested to log in with his credentials from the personal computer (front end) and the data went to server to check the credentials. Now, the backend will check the the credentials and decide whether a user to be allowed or not.
  4. Database is also a part of backend.
Now, Coming to your questions:
In your android application :
  1. XML
  2. Android(Java code)
  1. PHP with JSON(on the server if your android application needs a server to connect)
  2. Database.
Hope it helps!

I do have i mdb file on 1 pc and i need to shared wit 3 pc

First make sure all 3 PCs are on the same workgroup or domain. You can verify that in the System Properties, accessible by right-clicking the My Computer icon and selecting Properties, then selecting the Computer Name tab; below the Full Computer Name will be the domain or workgroup.

Once all 3 PCs are on the correct workgroup/domain, navigate to the folder where the file in question resides, and right-click the folder itself (not the file) and select Properties, and then the Sharing tab. From this tab you can select to share the folder, and set access restrictions if needed, and then the other 2 PCs should see the new share in their Network Places within a few minutes.
