Setting up (networking) 2 computers for multi-user mode for Reckon Account Right 2021
I do have 2 computers that uses Reckon Account Right 2021. One computer (PC1) is the host computer that contains/shares the company files, and the other computer (PC2) connects to PC1 to access reckon company files.
Both computers are Windows 10 Pro.
And there is NO firewall hardware device in the network (cisco, sophos, fortinet, watchguard, etc) -- just a regular modem.
Also, there is no 3rd-party Antivirus -- only using windows security and windows defender firewall.
My current issue is that when PC2 connects to the company files located at PC1, it takes about 20 seconds for the HOME dashboard to fully load. (The other business I know who uses reckon in Multi-user mode takes about 7 seconds for the HOME dashboard to load)
Using PC2, it takes about 5 seconds to load a company file that is located locally (that is within PC2, too). So i was expecting that it would only take about 10 seconds to open a company file that is located in another computer.
With what I have read in other threads/sites, these are the things I have done so far...
In both PCs , I have updated the Windows Defender Firewall to allow apps: (see photos below)
- File Management.exe
In both PCs, I also updated the Inbound Rules and Outbound Rules (see photos below). In both Inbound and Outbound rules, LOCAL PORT is "10184", and the REMOTE PORT is "ALL PORTS", is that correct?
