You can process orders from more than 1 Actinic site by changing the current site being processed. Click on the Change Site button.
If using a local site you can select either the current Actinic site or specify a specific site. You can also choose to view order on an archived site.
If you want to access an Actinic site on another computer you should select the Remote Actinic site option. To be able to do this you must have access to a shared drive on the remote Actinic computer. To share a drive from the Actinic computer you should use explorer, select the drive (or directory) that Actinic is in (for example, C:\Program Files\Actinic v7) and select the share option. You will need to give full access to the remote drive.
NOTE: You don?t have to share the entire PC drive. You only need to share the Actinic directory (e.g. C:\Program Files\Actinic v7). One Stop Order Processing will find the Actinic sites in whichever drive you specify.
Once you have selected the shared Actinic folder (using the Select Shared Actinic Folder button) Order Processing for Actinic will attempt to find all the Actinic sites within that drive. For security you may only want to share the Actinic Ecommerce v6 directory (for V6). This is fine as Order Processing will look for all sites within the shared directory. Once the Actinic directory has been found, the available sites will be shown the Actinic sites directory. Select the site to use and press OK.
If you using Actinic V8 (or above) and using a Remote site
you need to share and connect to 2 Actinic folders. This is because Actinic
now stores the Actinic sites in a different location to the main program. One
Stop Order Processing requires access to both.
From the Actinic PC you need to share the following 2 folders:
C:\Program Files\Actinic V8
The location that you specify for the sites when installaing Actinic. For example, C:\Users\Public\Documents\Actinic V8 (for Windows Vista).
If you are having problems accessing the remote location or opening the remote Actinic database refer to the following:

Accessing the remote database
1 Are the computers both in the same domain or workgroup? If they are in the same workgroup do the accounts on both machines with the same name and password. If using a domain does the user have local administrative rights on both machines?
2 The computers should be in the same intranet. If they aren?t (or you have a firewall in place) you may see an error similar to:

b. Select the Local Intranet zone and press the Sites button.
c. Click on the Advanced button
d. Type in the IP address or computer name that you want to be treated as if it were in your local intranet.
