Restrict certain PCs to the old PHP GUI interface only?

My configuration:
My system setup: Windows 7, 64 bit, i7 CPU, 8GB.
TimeTrex setup: Local
Product Edition: Standard
Version:5.2.4
Tax Engine Version:1.0.21
Tax Data Version: 20130104

My tiny company uses old, slow PCs connected over very slow, remote internet connections at our 3 remote locations. (Only have 2 PCs at each location.)
The internet connections cannot be faster....there is no vendor selling faster connections in the area.

We're finding the new Flash-based user interface to be very slow on these old remote PCs connected via slow internet connections.

Is there any way to restrict certain PCs (certain IP addresses) to the older PHP interface...which we're finding to be much faster at these remote locations?

Thank you!

What version of Flash are they using? There is a bug in some of the latest 11.5.x versions of Flash that cause severe slowness on some machines. Reverting back to 11.2 for example fixes the issue until Adobe is able to fix the bug on their end.

Not quite a fix, and an admittedly ugly hack at that, but how about just making a landing page that includes direct links to each interface?

Code: Select all

<html>
  <head>stuff...</head>
    <body>
      <a href="http://link.to/interface/login.php">Use the old interface</a>
      <a href="http://link.to/interface/flex/">Use the new interface</a>
    </body?
</html>
(pretty it up to suit your needs :wink: )
