I am trying to figure out how I can sync a client machine running Windows XP or Windows 7 and running SQL Express 2008 R2. I want to try and initiate a pull from the client to the publisher (Merge Replication). I am having an issue trying to
figure out how I can use the windows sync manager to accomplish this since the client doesn't have SQL Agent to actually run the sync job.
Is there another way to kick off the pull from the publisher? I had originally wanted to push everything down from a server (publisher), but because of our strict firewall policy, etc I can't seem to establish a remote connection to the clients.
Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
