One thing more to check in this stage is the speed of access from remote
computer when read and write is being done from both locations at the
same time.

I found that the access slows down as the size of tables increases.
With upto a 1000 rows the speed difference is negligible. But with 5k
records the speed difference begins to show.

And becomes more noticeable when the number of rows altered/added by the
remote terminal increases.

Anticipate the max rows your table will be holding and then check after
inserting some dummy rows if required.
