WFP5 - Sharing TMs same LAN not working!

Hi!

I'm trying to share a TM with a colleague on the same LAN network.

I'm using this procedure:

"Sharing Wordfast Pro TM via LAN or DropBox
This method is useful for sharing TMs between a small group of freelancers:
1- If you and your colleagues are on a LAN, you can put all the TMs on a Map Network Drive. If you rather on different locations, you can use shared DropBox folders instead.
2- In Wordfast Pro > Translation Memory menu > New/Select TM, add the TMs, and mark other's TMs as "Selected" + "Read Only".
3- Mark your own TM as "Selected".
That is to say, each user will have a writeable TM file, but all other users have (read-only) access to all TM files of other team members."

However, despite the fact that I am using my colleague's TM as read-only, I'm still getting the error: "TM is exclusively locked for administrative use". I tried closing WFP5 in both computers and opening it up again. I've set it up just as ordered, but the second computer does not have access to the TMs...

How may I solve this? What other solutions could I try in this case? We've tried Wordfast Anywhere for a while, but it hasn't worked out very well for us.

The same OS? Then it may have something to do with a specific firewall/share settings; what about accessing other net-mapped files via a shared network?


Meanwhile, using VPN agents such as Hamachi, Tungle, LanGame, GameRanger, Comodo Unite, and many others, one mustn't be in the same LAN, locus, or country)

We use the same OS and the same settings, firewall, etc. We are able to share other files, so I don't think our issue is with the LAN network.

It seems to me that it is a problem with the software. The first person to open WFP5 is able to access the TMs without restrictions, the second one gets the error message. Despite the fact that I set it up so we are not using the same TMs to translate, mine is set as read-only in the second computer and the TM of the second computer is set as read-only in my computer.

An issue for the software help line Jun 20

Have you tried Wordfast Hotline? This is a software issue.

Indeed, if everything else works fine and it's not a "blank password" issue or file access restrictions, then it's high time to contact the vendor.


Cheers

Use Wordfast Server to share TMs and glossaries Jun 21

Hello Lais,

Sharing TMs like this is not supported by Wordfast Pro 5. Users were able to do this successfully with Wordfast Pro 3 to a certain extent until TMs got too big.
Wordfast Server is an enterprise solution that should be used for sharing TMs and glossaries: http://wordfast.com/products/products_wordfast_server

Kind regards,

John
