Not for profit client care
We are QuickBooks experts but a colleague told me your software may work better for this not-for- profit child care center I just agreed to do some free work for. They are using Excel for receipts and disbursements and monthly or quarterly posting them Simple Accounting. They have two locations, both with a separate set of books. Their year end is April. For each calendar year they have to provide child care receipts to parents for the amount the parents paid. Sometimes the parents will receive a grant for their child care; this in not included in the annual receipt.
Is it reasonable to expect that xTuple could handle the online accounting for these two child care centres?

You'll probably have better luck getting a response to this question if you post in one of our forums.

Database Conection Problem
We have tried everything to connect xtuple postbooks to our server machine from the client computers to no success. It is perfectly running at the server.
We were planning to buy the manufacturing edition after a successful installation of the free edition.
unluckily, this is our main setback!!! - (Postgres database connectivity)
Can someone urgently assist before we give up????

Don't give up! You'll find worst problems thas this one :-)
You may need to modify this postgreas config files: postgresql.conf and pg_hba.conf, in oprder to allow connections from outside of the server.
Take a look to this post:
http://www.xtuple.org/InstallingPostgresFromSource (search for "Editing the Configuration Files")
also, you may need to open the port where postgres listen to connections (usually 5432) in your company firewall.
hope this helps

If you are trying to install on CentOS6, it is setup with selinux enabled and regardless of how you set the pg_hba file the selinux prevents access. I wanted to install Drupal with postgresql and it kept refusing to connect even on the localhost. It took about a week to figure that out and I already had it disabled when I installed xTuple so I don't know if that is your issue.
