computer. Supported emailing client are "Microsoft outlook", "outlook express" and "Windows live mail". These are the
three main emailing client and you probably already have one on your computer but maybe it is not properly
configured. Let's see how to configure each emailing client.

Microsoft Outlook
This emailing client is used by a lot of business. It's one of the most powerful emailing client on the market today. We do not
recommend the use of Microsoft outlook as you must pay for it and there is a lot of features that you will probably not use.

Outlook Express
This emailing client is commonly used by home users. It's a simple emailing client.

Windows live mail
This is the new emailing client from microsoft. It is free and we strongly recommend you use this one. In the past, you were
able to create an hotmail email address in MS Outlook but now it's only possible with WLM.
Windows Live Mail works with popular Web-based e-mail services such as Hotmail, AOL mail, Google mail, and
Yahoo! mail. Windows Live Mail is built to automatically configure many popular e-mail services.

Network Edition Setup
When you install MLM Network Marketing Helper client software on your computer, an embedded database is
installed by default to allow you to try out the software without further configuration. However, when you're
ready to share the software on a network with multiple users, you need to install a shared database on a
server. Any Windows computer may act as the "server", as long as it is accessible from all of the computers
which need to access the shared database. You also want to make sure the computer is able to run without
interruption to avoid any potential for database corruption which might occur if the computer is restarted
while users are connecting to and using the database.
To set up MLM Network Marketing Helper for use on a network by multiple users, there are three basic steps:
1.    Install the client software on the computers which will run MLM Network Marketing Helper.
2.    Install the database server software on a shared Windows server.
3.    Connect the client computers to the database server.

Installing the client software:
The client software is the program that users interact with to enter and update vehicle records. If
you have used the trial version of MLM Network Marketing Helper, then you have already installed at
least one copy of this software. This software is available for download at http://www.vinitysoft.com/
mlmnetworkmarketinghelper.html Note that in order to connect to a shared database server, you must
purchase MLM Network Marketing Helper. All editions of MLM Network Marketing Helper run in single user
stand-alone mode by default. The Network Edition can also connect to a central database server.


Install the database server software:
The database server software is very easy to install in the default configuration.   To install in the default
configuration, follow these simple steps:

1.      Log on to your server and download the setup program from http://www.vinitysoft.com/VFM/
NetworkVFM.exe
2.   Run the setup program that you downloaded in step 1, and accept all defaults.
This program will install a Firebird Database Server and a new MLM Network Marketing Helper
database. The new database will be installed in "C:\Program files\MLM Network Marketing Helper Data
\MLM_DATA.FDB".


Connect the client computers to the shared database:
After installing the database server, you may connect your client computer(s) to the shared database server
by following these steps:
Open MLM Network Marketing Helper on one of the client computers which it is installed on.
1.      Select the menu Options - Personalize. Insert the name of the server(computer) that host the
 database in the field ‘Database Server’ (if you don't know the name of the server, log on to the    server
and right-click "My Computer", choose "Properties", and then select the "Computer Name"      tab.)
2.    Click "Save"
3.     Close and then reopen MLM Network Marketing Helper. You're now connected to the shared database
    server.

Warning! If your database server is also used as a client workstation you must replace the "(local)" value
in the field "Database server" of the menu "Options - Personalize" by the server computer name (like you do
for every client workstation).

Warning! If your network is not managed (small network are usually not managed), maybe you will have
to type the IP adress of the database server instead of it's name in the field ‘Database Server’.

Warning! If your database server have a firewall configured, you wil have to either, deactivate it or, add
an exception to the firewall. The program file you have to allow your client workstation to access to is : "C:
\Program Files\Firebird\Firebird_2_0\fbserver.exe". To add an exception to the firewall (within Windows XP),
go to "Start - Control panel - Firewall". Click on "Exceptions" tab then click on "Add a program". Click on
"Browse" then select this file : "C:\Program Files\Firebird\Firebird_2_0\Bin\fbserver.exe".
