It is not recommended that you use a laptop to host the server. In order to use Billings Pro, Billings Pro Server needs to fulfill the following conditions:
- The computer which it is installed on must be switched on at all times.
- Billings Pro Server Admin needs to be turned on at all times.
- *There must be a stable network available at all times.
*The last condition cannot be met if the laptop is being moved from one location to another.
The only caveat is If you have an old laptop that you don't use for travel and it is always in the same place connected to the same network, then there should not be a problem using it as a server.
