Hey folks, here's a tutorial on how to set up multi-user access for your Indie Band Manager files over the internet, pretty cool stuff!
I've separated the tutorial into three quicktime mp4 movies... steps one, two, and three. Each movie is only a couple minutes long.
In a nutshell, you need to install FileMaker Pro (a 30 day trial version is available for free download), open the Indie Band Manager 1Menu5 file with FileMaker, and it pretty much runs on its own, it's awesome. You do need to configure your router's forwarding ports too, but I detailed that in video three.
FileMaker Pro can cost about $299 per person depending on where you buy it, so there is a cost involved in purchasing their software. I receive none of that money, just so you know.
Video one: Opening the files using FileMaker Pro
Video two: Accessing the files from another computer over the internet
Video three: Configuring your router
The links to each video are here, you can download them to your computer if you want:
