|OK, let me be more clear about my intentions. I am a database designer that uses Microsoft Access 2010. However, as of yet, I have not had the opportunity to install one of my projects on a network.|
Some of my clients want to use their databases on a network, so I thought it would be a good idea for me to learn more about how networks operate and I wanted to make a setup at home that I can practice on so that when it comes time to actually do it for a client, I somewhat know what I am doing.
So, I wanted to set up my two computers so that one of them acts as the Server and the other a workstation so I can practice installing a project on the network. But, if I can avoid having to buy say Windows Server 2012 which costs $800+ then I would like to know I can at least practice with what I have to get used to working with networks.
