3 Options For Remote Access to Microsoft Dynamics GP During COVID19


Email | Print

With the onset of the COVID-19 virus, more and more of our customers suddenly need remote access to Dynamics GP.   With Dynamics GP, it is only supported where both the Dynamics GP Client and the SQL Database are both on the same local area network (in the same physical location).  So how do we work remotely from our homes, or other locations?  Here are your three options:

  1. From your workstation in your home or other location, using the RDP application (this is a program that comes preinstalled with both Windows and Macintosh computers), connect to a terminal server in the same physical location of your back end SQL Server.  The terminal server would need the Dynamics GP client installed, so you would then launch Dynamics GP on the terminal server.  Keep in mind this requires an additional server at the physical location of your SQL Database Server and requires Windows and User licenses.
  2. Connect to your office PC by using a remote control program like TeamViewer or Logme-in, etc.  Again this requires a license for each user.
  3. Move Dynamics GP to the cloud. Details.

Right now, Njevity is offering a special “Remote Go Pro” discount to help existing Dynamics GP users to get up and running quickly in the cloud during these challenging times.

Important Note: Dynamics GP Should Not Be Run Over a WAN or VPN Network

We realize that during a time of uncertainly, it can be hard to compare your options and make a decision. CAL Business Solutions can help. Contact our team, so we can help your team get up and running, from your home offices.
