Error H101, H202, H303, or H505: when opening your company file

When you open a company file in multi-user mode, you see an error:

  • You're trying to work with a company file located on another computer, and this copy of QuickBooks can't reach the server on that computer (H202).
  • You're trying to work with a company file located on another computer, and that computer needs additional installation and setup. (H101, H303, and H505).
  • It appears that the QuickBooks software on computer [server name] is set up to allow shared connections to the company file, but the QuickBooks software on your computer is unable to communicate with it. (H202).

 

Note: Intuit does not support firewall or anti-virus programs. You may need to consult the program provider for assistance with installing and setting up your program.
