Document Checkout?


I have a client who has multiple users in different locations. They are wanting to store MS access databases, and quickbooks files in a central location. Any suggestions on software to try? Would something like knowledgetree be best? Or just plain ole ftp?


Thanks!

Sounds like you should try something that has the ability to store revision history and so on. Good old CVS might not be the best tools but there are other newer versioning systems that might work well with binary files (like Access database files). I don't know for sure how well binaries are supported, but have a look at Subversion (excellent docs here).
