I have a Laptop with Tally.ERP 9 Silver running on it. When I connect this laptop to the LAN where Tally.Server 9 is running, can I get the benefits of Tally.Server 9 which is installed on some other machine in that LAN? If Yes, how?

Yes. You can enjoy the benefits of Tally.Server 9 even in that laptop. However, you need to configure your Silver license as Multi-Deployment License. This is a one-time procedure. This configuration will help you to fetch Tally.Server 9 Data Endpoints whenever you are connected to LAN. You can still access your Local data.
