What database are you using? Access? You may want to convert your database to MySQL. I've never used any of them, but on google you will find a few interesting things:

you should be able to manage your MySQL database through command line (ssh, for example) from different machines on the same network without a problem. There're graphical tools to manage MySQL, but I never used any of them either

Good graphical tools are phpmyadmin (web interface) and mysql-administrator.

Access can export to CSV and phpMyAdmin will import those files. Easy to convert
