    I set up remote access on my home computer thru Win XP and it works great except for Gerber, it won't let me access. I get an error message along the lines of "Cannot us on this system" or something like that.
    Is there any way to make it work?

    You have to have a security key on the computer at home as well.

    With the lastest of the upgrade, which was 2.5,They are now at 2.6, I think, you could also have another design station(I use mine at home)You obviously can't output with it, but saves alot of time designing at home. Then save on disc or e-mail to yourself, viola, now you can output at work or tweak or whatever...

    If you need an upgrade to 2.6 the workstation comes free with the upgrade. You have to order the upgrade before July 30th. I'm waiting for mine to come here any day now

    Does anyone know off-hand, about how much the upgrade is from 2.1 to 2.6? Round numbers. It's the CP version. (I think that's the highest one)

    We have two licensed copies of the Omega 2.1. Wonder if they'd cut me any kind of deal to upgrade both workstations? Thanks for the information, that's less than I'd figured.

    There is a discount for 2 seats of Omega, I'm not sure what it is though, something like full price 1st seat and half price for 2nd seat.
