Sending a Database to Arts Management Systems using Timbuktu - Macintosh

To speed up the file transfer process you may compress your database and transaction files into an archive using Stuff-It. Their demonstration software can be downloaded from the website http://www.aladdinsys.com. If you require a copy of Timbuktu, please visit http://www.netopia.com/en-us/software/products/tb2/index.html for downloading an evaluation copy. If you find this tool useful, we recommend you purchasing a copy for your organization.

Prior to sending a database to Arts Management, you must obtain 3 things to complete the process. Contact Arts Management Technical Support for these values:

  • the TCP/IP address of the computer you are about to send the database to
  • the login user name
  • the login password
  1. Open Timbuktu
  2. Select New Connection from the File Menu

    The following New Connection window will appear
