Software or Hardware Firewall Port and IP Address Configuration:
So you got a SBS 2008 or Server 2008 and you need to install Lacerte on there?
Here’s the 2007 firewall info but if you need ‘any’ year installed just replace the 07 with the year of the program
Firewalls (hardware or software applications) exist to prevent unauthorized access to a computer or network. They may also monitor or block data transmissions, which can interfere with Lacerte communications. Most firewall applications have an option to “allow” or “trust” applications but some may require specifying port numbers and IP addresses for successful communication. Please refer to the firewall manufacturer’s instructions on how to configure the firewall.
For Lacerte communications, the following files should be configured to “allow” or “trust” in your software firewall application.
Filename File Location
W07Setup.exe C:\Program Files\Common Files\Lacerte Shared
WebSetup07.exe C:\Program Files\Common Files\Lacerte Shared
If you are using a hardware firewall (router/switch), then you may need to configure the router/switch. Before doing so, first try resetting the router/switch and/or the cable/DSL modem. Please refer to the manufacturers instructions for resetting or configuring the router/switch.
