Hi there,

With the Windows firewall on and all the Accpac and Pervasive programs added to the Exception's list, Accpac clients are not able to access the database. The program files are loaded from the server.

They are prompted for their login and the Pervasive Splash Screen pops up after login but then it returns the error connecting to database error 2.

With the firewall off, it loads like normal.

Which service, program or port do you think I missing to add to the exception list?

Windows Firewall is a piece of junk. Turn it off, and get a real hardware firewall.
