CheckPoint 1.3.86 Released

This version contains an update to the inter-database sync process.

In order to sync properly, CheckPoint needs to download the data entry status of the remote database. Previously this was only performed on a regular download frequency – usually every minute for LAN connections and every 5 minutes for Internet connections. Thus it is not immediately apparent if the remote database is changed in any way.

This version adds in an option to poll the remote database to determine if anything has changed. This small poll message is received very quickly and if it indicates the remote database changed, the local CheckPoint then gets the full status data notifying the user of the change.

For a local LAN connection, setting the “Maintain Connection” to Yes and the Polling Frequency to 1 second should allow instant notification of any remote database changes.

For an Internet connection, the Maintain Connection is set to No by default. It can be turned on with the Polling Frequency set to suit the local connection type.

As part of this change, the Sync process (both inline in CheckPoint and using the Sync Manager) has been fully tested and a number of bugs fixed.

For this new functionality to work, both the local and remote CheckPoint systems must be using v1.3.86
