  1. In the New Rule window, click on Port and later press Next.
  2. Next, be sure that TCP is selected.
  3. Under the Specific local ports field, type the Specific ports required for the QB year version you are currently using:

  1. Once you enter the port number, press Next.
  2. Choose Allow the Connection and hit the Next tab.
  3. If you’re prompted, make sure all profiles are marked. Later, click the Next icon again.

  5. After this, select Finish.
  6. Re-implement similar actions to create outbound rules.

Step 2: Create Windows firewall exceptions for QuickBooks programs

QuickBooks makes use of executable files (.exe) to perform many accounting operations. To create exceptions for each executable on the table, adhere to the following steps:

  2. Now, enter Windows Firewall into the search bar, and then open Windows Firewall.
  3. Select the Advanced Settings option.
  4. Hit right-click on Inbound Rules and hit the New Rule tab.
  5. Choose Program and then press Next.
  6. Afterward, choose This Program Path and click on Browse.
  7. Search and select any one executable file from the table listed below. Then, hit the Next tab.
  8. Moving ahead, select the option Allow the Connection and then click Next.
  9. If prompted, you need to verify that all profiles are tickmarked and then click the Next button.
  10. Create a rule and give it a name: “QBFirewallException(name.exe).”
  11. And finally, re-implement the same steps to create outbound rules.

Below is a list of some executable files, along with their locations: 

Executable filesLocation
IntuitSyncManager.exeC:\Program Files\Common Files\Intuit\Sync
QBCFMonitorService.exeC:\Program Files\Common Files\Intuit\QuickBooks
