If there are Issues with Firewall then follow these steps:
In windows, the firewall settings can prevent QB from connecting with the company file that is on a remote server or system. You can turn off the firewall to see the impact. Also, you may have to change advanced firewall settings in order to fix this connectivity issue.
To Modify Advanced Firewall Settings, follow the steps provided below:
- Search for “Windows Firewall with Advanced Security” through the start menu
- Select Inbound Rules from the left panel
- Enter the port that you want to allow
- Enter the complete path for the executable file of QB
- Select Allow the Connection
- Mark all the checkboxes and click on next
- Do not skip this, as later you won’t be able to identify this new rule without any name and description.
- Select Outbound Rules from the left panel and repeat all the steps provided above
You can also open the host file in windows and allow the connection to specific ports. Please make a copy of the host file before making any changes to it.
At this point, you can also disable antivirus and anti-malware software that are known for blocking network connections. Once done, restart QB and try to reconnect to the company file. If this fails as well, then the problem might not be with your system or network.
Contact ISP or Hosting Provider
Call your Internet service provider and ask them to resolve any connectivity issues. Also, contact your cloud hosting provider, if you have any, enquire about the problem that you’re having. Most probably it may be an issue with their servers or connections. Various issues have been reported even when the basic underlying problem was authenticated. Hence, if you or your hosting provider has altered the authentication details then please update them before trying anything else.
This can also be an issue with the settings of multi-user mode. You may require professional help for getting through these settings.
