  2.  QNAP NAS with virtual machine function
  3. Windows  Professional license
  4. Terminal service software license

Here are the steps involve to turn it to cloud:

  1. Install Windows Professional operating system to your QNAP virtual environment
  2. Install terminal service application in Windows of QNAP
  3. Create users for remote desktop access via control panel
  4. Install ABSS or MYOB into virtual machine
  5. Copy all your ABSS or MYOB datafiles and forms into virtual machine
  6. Configure port forwarding on your router to the virtual machine IP address
  7. Subscribe to dynamic DNS and configure to router

To access in office:

  1. Point your remote desktop access to the local IP address
  2. Connect using your user ID and password
  3. You are ready to use ABSS or MYOB within virtual environment

To access out of office
