ezPaycheck Payroll Software: How to Print Paychecks over Network

In-house Payroll Software: ezPaycheck automates and streamlines payroll processing for small businesses. With the ezPayCheck multiple-user version, multiple users can share the same data using a server, a shared computer folder, cloud storage (for example: Google Drive or Dropbox), or other options. You can choose the best option for your company.

If you have a server, here are the two options to run payroll software over network:
  • Option 1: Install ezPaycheck on each local computer and share the same database file on the server.
  • Option 2: Install ezPaycheck directly on the server and grant remote access permission to multiple users.

  • Option 1: Install ezPaycheck on Each Local Computer and Share the Same Database File on the Server.

    We suggest the option 1 for data sharing. Most users can share the data easily.

    Option 2: Install ezPaycheck on server directly and give the Remote Access Permission to multiple Users

    If your company has IT or system administrator, please ask them for help if you see any issue. Most issues with this option are caused by server security and user permissions.

    You can download and install ezPaycheck on server and give access permissions to Multiple Users.

  • 1. Log on server as administrator, download and install ezPaycheck on server.

  • 2. Start ezPaycheck application, setup company, employee information and print one test check to make sure ezPaycheck works normally.
