Noob Question:

Wanting to set up a server with Intuit's Quickbooks accounting software (which is of course a Windows product) and allow my clients to remotely login and access their accounts. Rather than install and administer a Windows server, can an Ubuntu server with WINE (or something equivalent) allow the have the same capability?

Just curious to know if it is even remotely (no pun intended) possible!

Thank you.

Howdy,

Older versions of Quickbooks run on WINE. New versions don't. So if you can get something circa 2000, then it will likely work. The version I use is from 1998 and it works well on WINE.

Otherwise, install Win2003 server in a VM on VMware or Virtualbox and use that.
