Configure Firewall/Antivirus to Work with Reckon

Using Reckon only helped in improving the business accounting and enhances the performance of the one who is maintaining it. But sometimes, due to some software the Reckon doesn't perform well. Firewall and antivirus software can actually hamper the performance of the accounting software.

With the help of some settings, we can avoid such situations. All you are required to do is:
  1. Check the compatibility of Firewall and antivirus: It might be important to customize the settings in firewall or antivirus software to get the maximum out of its performance with Accounts Business. For more information go through the product documentation.
  2. You will be asked to allow components to get an access to the network if firewall is running while installing Accounts Business. For data communication it utilizes Internet Protocol TCP/IP in multi-user environments. You have to configure your software settings to permit it to communicate using TCP/IP if company's network is secured by a firewall.

Most of the applications let the user to configure them for particular program access.
Keep in mind the following files and ports which are required to get the access for both Incoming and Outgoing traffic.

The port number is different for each edition:

Accounts Business 2017 use Port 10180
Accounts Business 2016 use Port 10179
Accounts Business 2013 use Port 10176
QuickBooks 2010/11 use Port 10173
QuickBooks 2009/10 and 2008/09 use Port 10172

Files that need to be made exceptions are:

In C:\Program Files x86\Intuit\QuickBooks 200x-xx, where xx is the user's year version:

(Accounts Business:  C:\Program Files x86\Intuit\ReckonAccounts 2013)   

In C:\Program Files x86\Common Files\Intuit\QuickBooks:

(Same directory for Accounts Business 2013)


There are different versions of software applications, so pick the one that doesn't block the connections to its components. As firewall and antivirus can affect the performance of Accounts Business. Refer to the documentation if you think the performance is affected due to firewall.
