When I created the db, I entered localhost as the server address. It took a while to figure out that when I opened that db file on a network machine and got Communication Link error, that the ip address was the problem. I changed it to the host machine’s IP address (192.168.0.19), however when I am working on the host machine I cannot connect. I use the computer name for the IP address and get the same thing.
What needs to be done so that the host machine and network machines can all connect?
