So what ports are needed for Quickbooks in the various years?


Quickbooks 2009 —


80 and 443 outbound
55333-55337 inbound and outbound
Fallback port 56719

Quickbooks 2008 –


80 and 443 outbound
10180 inbound and outbound


Quickbooks 2007 –


Port 10172 inbound and outbound


Quickbooks 2006 –


Port 10160 inbound and outbound


Quickbooks 2005 –


QBW32.exe and QBupdate.exe through the firewall


Remember these holes need to be done on the server as well on SBS 2008.  Do NOT disable the firewall.



Click on allow a program through the firewall



Click on Add port


 


Do this for each port in that list for the versions of quickbooks you have running on the server.  You do not need to make any port adjustment for port 80 and 443, that is done in the CEICW wizard (or whatever they call that wizard these days)

    you got so many holes in your firewall it looks like swiss cheese…

    maybe you ought to save yourself some time and trouble and rely on a good perimeter firewall…

    FYI Sproket that is not meant to be the outside firewall. Server 2008 ships with the firewall enabled on the server. Do NOT turn it off. This is standard operational procedure for the internal nic.
