      You may encounter errors if your firewall blocks Internet access needed for specific QuickBooks programs or files.

      Updating your firewall to the latest release may resolve the issue or you may need to manually configure your firewall software.

      Configure Firewall and Antivirus settings


      Configure firewall ports automatically

      Running the QuickBooks File Doctor automatically opens firewall ports. Use QuickBooks File Doctor: Fix your company file or network (US, CA, and the UK) to configure Windows Firewall.

      Manually configure exceptions and ports to your Firewall


        • Windows 10, 8, 7, Server 2008 and Server 2012


        • Server 2003


      Configure your 3rd Party AntiVirus/Firewall Programs

      Note: Only perform this if configuring the Windows Firewall does not resolve the issue.

        • Due to the vast number of firewall programs available and their ever-changing versions, Intuit is unable to provide additional configuration steps. Refer to your software’s documentation or the software publisher’s website for support.


        • Intuit does not support or maintain steps on the various internet security programs on the market today. In most cases, you should be fine just adding the ports above to the Windows Firewall.
