Ii want to be able to access the software on 2 PCs in our home office, which are networked together.

I found the bit in the Help files that says to log in with http://MYPCNAME:96

When I enter this URL I get a login screen asking for email login and a password.

Where do I set these? I don't remember giving a user email and password when I first set up Easy Invoices.

I can't find any Help file on the topic of Network Access and passwords.

hi,
I added something to the FAQ's yesterday.
You can set up express Invoice/Accounts to be accessible to a number of contributors by using Web Access.
Go into 'Tools' > 'Options'> 'Web Access' and check the box to enable Web Access. Then go to the next tab 'Web Accounts'
Click Add, set up the user as you want them and press ok. These people can access the web version via the address on the Web Access tab
e.g. http://192.168.1.100:98/  On this page they will be asked for their email address and Password to log in.

I didn't realise what the Add Accounts tag was for. Thanks!

Not quite there yet!

I can now log on from my laptop, but after the login screen I am asked "Select Company Profile" with a drop down box which is empty.

Whether I click OK or Cancel I get to an Easy Invoice menu (great!) but there is no data (not great!)

What is Company Profile and how do I set it, please?

I have installed express Invoice, Express Account and Inventoria.  I have enabled web access and created users and gave them administrator access on a windows XP Professional pc on my home network.  When I type the url http://Mypcname:96 I get a express login screen for login.  I use my email address as username and the password that I entered into the Web access screen but I cannot login.  any ideas why i cannot login to my express invoice or any other accounting modules.  I have opened the ports 96, 97, 98 on my router and pc.  I have doubled checked the user name/email address and passwords.  I get a login screen but cannot login into the computer/express invoice.

I am having the same issue. I have set up my web access and configured my firewall and router for access. I try to log on via the home network using the account that I set up and it doesnt work. says I am using the wrong username/pw but when I go back to the host pc I notice that the User Account has been disabled...I try to enable it and login from my laptop and it does the same thing....over and over and over.....
