While my family is making the transition from Windows based machines to Macintosh, we currently have the following network connected to a cable modem.
(1) MacBook Pro
(1) Windows Desktop
(1) Windows (Home Automation) “Server”
(3) Windows Laptops
(1) Linksys NAS
While I do have Parallels running on my MacBook Pro and therefore the ability to continue using PaperPort 12.0, I have wanted to use DevonThink for years and now have the ability to do that.
I currently have our documents stored in 69 directories with many more sub-directories and I am not even going to guess how many files. These are on my Linksys NAS in a RAID 1 configuration.
I will be using a Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500M for Mac for my scanning needs.
Before I make this leap, I need to figure out how I am going to configure the system. How does DevonThink Office Pro operate in a client / server or network based system?
Does this all work with the built in web server?
Can I set up DevonThink Office Pro on the iMac, storing the database on the NAS, and accessing the data through the web server?
Can that database be moved to a new NAS when I upgrade to one which supports AFP / Bonjour?
The reason I would need to put the DevonThink on the iMac is because the MacBook Pro is a laptop, and is away from the house for long periods of time. My family would still need the access to these files. But, I work mainly on the MacBook Pro. Is there a way to have DevonThink Office Pro installed on both the iMac and MacBook Pro using the same database?
