Quickbooks / Reckon Accounts Firewall rules

In a previous blogpost, I discussed setting the correct firewall port rules for Quickbooks. In Australia the developer of Quickbooks has parted ways from the American mothership and the product has been re-branded Reckon Accounts. Who knows what is going to happen with the program over time.

Rather than port numbers I now use the executable names for the firewall exceptions. When it comes to annual upgrades, you just have to change the file/folder names, rather than guessing port numbers or call their support desk.

I have developed a script that sets the right options:

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="Reckon Accounts DB Service" profile=Domain,Private dir=in action=allow program="C:\Program Files (x86)\Intuit\ReckonAccounts 2013\QBLanService.exe"
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="Reckon Accounts DB Manager" profile=Domain,Private dir=in action=allow program="C:\Program Files (x86)\Intuit\ReckonAccounts 2013\QBDBMgrN.exe"
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="Reckon Accounts DB Manager (N)" ;profile=Domain,Private dir=in action=allow program="C:\Program Files (x86)\Intuit\ReckonAccounts 2013\QBDBMgrN.exe"
pause

Cut and paste the above into notepad and save as a command file (.cmd), then run it and the firewall rules for the server are set!

  6. So with all the above thought of it as', no big surprise that a great many little organizations in the U.S. have embraced QuickBooks to upgrade their business accounting. With the greater part of your monetary records and exercises being overseen through one programming program, once you begin utilizing QuickBooks, you may think about how you ever got along without it.http://phonenumbersupport.com/quickbooks-support-number/
