Hi all,

Please excuse the real basic nature of these questions, but I
was unable to grok the user guides for answers to this issue.

I want to evaluate Perforce for smaller groups of mobile users
and a typical setup would consist of a central Windows 2000 Server
machine hosting the depot and users connecting to this depot
over the LAN or via Dialup to co and ci files. The users do
most of their work on thir laptops in a disconnected mode.

How can this be set up? Do I need to get a demo license to set this
up on a trial basis? The quickstart user guides seem to assume that
the client and server are on the same host.

Any ideas and advice would be greatly appreciated.
