There are times when you won't be able to connect to the servervia a LAN, a WAN, or a modem. For example, you might be traveling by plane or train or staying in an older hotel/motel with hard-wired phones. In these cases, you can only work offline. Change your location to Island (Disconnected) so your computer does not attempt to connect to the server if you accidentally try to open one of the databases only found on the server.
Remember to change your location again when you reach a site where you can connect to the server.
