Rakela,
If you don't use a program that maps an FTP site like a hard drive, it will be imposable for you to have any type of ArchiCAD project on it and be able to acess it directly through ArchiCAD.

This has been a limitation in ArchiCAD for a long time.

Just a little food for thought.

Cheers.

You could probably come up with some kind of system where a local person creates a PLC file with a workspace for each remote person to work from, then the remote person downloads it, edits it, then sends it back for a local person to "Send & Receive."

Could be a lot of overhead for not a lot of result.

I've had a client using Tom's solution very successfully. It's one of those straight forward simple approaches and since one person is managing all of the Send and Receive as long as everyone sticks to there work spaces there's not much chance of overwriting what someone else has done.

It will be the changes in workspace that will have to be closely managed.

Teamwork is pretty solid. The risk would be in having multiple versions of the same PLC flying around, which could pretty easily be over-written, or even have an older PLC "Send and Receive," undoing work sent from a later PLC! (yes, you get a warning, but you can click OK pretty easily!!)
