# Simply and Sage 50 Firewall Settings

When Setting up Simply Accounting or the newer Sage 50 software you will need to modify the firewall if you are running a multi user version. On the server or workstation where the data sits you will need to either disable the firewall or I recommend modify the firewall to allow the application and ports to allow to talk  through. Why Sage does not do this when installation I don’t know.

Here are the applications and ports that you will need to allow in the firewall. This example is for Sage 50 Canadian Edition but older Simply would be similar:

Most firewalls will prompt you for access when Sage 50â€”Canadian Edition is opened for the first time. It is important to allow all processes from Sage 50 through your firewall. If any processes are blocked, Sage 50 will not operate correctly. In the event that you block a Sage 50 process from running, you will need to go into the exceptions or permissions area of the firewall and allow full access to the process. (Consult your firewall’s documentation if unsure how to add exceptions/permissions.)

These are the Sage 50â€”Canadian Edition processes that must be allowed through the firewall:

Sage_SA_Policy.exe

Note: If you are using 64-bit windows, you should find those folders in C:\Program Files(x86). If you chose a different install location other than the default program files location, substitute your custom location for C:\Program Files\Sage 50 [Your Product Solution] [Year]. If you are using Sage Simply Accounting 2012 or prior, the folder name will be C:\Program Files\Sage Simply Accounting [Your Product Solution] [Year].

You also need to add ports 13531, 13540 – 13542 into your firewall allow lists. Those are the ports used by Connection Manager and the data files of Sage 50â€”Canadian Edition.
