Hi I'm trying to get Quickbooks Enterprise running on A Server 2019, but the database server manager reports error with the Windows firewall.  I have added the ports to the allow list in the firewall, but It is still being blocked.  

I opened 8019, 56728, 55378-55382 but no go, I also ran file doctor that usually finds the problem but it didn't find anything.

Thanks all.

Quick books uses dynamic ports such that you should configure incoming rule based on the application that listens making any port the service uses will be allowed in.

Check the qb service main, not the version based helpers and grant it rights on the incoming firewall..

When you define an incoming rule, grant it to the program not based on ports.

Note you need to identify the quickbook monitoring services.........
