QuickBooks and VPN’s Relation

QuickBooks And VPN's Relation

Handling a Cart or Handyman business with a paper trail is very common as well as successful. What to do when your Business starts to boom and suddenly the paper trail is getting out of hand and it’s getting hard to record the most crucial of data? As the amount of exchange of information increases so does the need for some sort of automation in the processes.  It might have been a very complex procedure a few years ago but now it only takes a couple of days.

What’s a VPN?

A VPN which stands for Virtual Private Network which exists on top of a physical network. A VPN allows you to create a secure connection to another network over the internet and enables users to send and receive data across other networks as if they were connected to the same private network.

Perhaps an analogy would work best here:

Suppose you connect your computer which exists in X location to a VPN which exists in Y location.  When the connection is established your computer will act as it is on the same local network as the VPN.

So your computer will be physically in X location but it will behave as it is in Y.

What’s the Relation Between a VPN and QuickBooks?

VPNs can be used to share the User Interface of software such as QuickBooks with a computer which is not in the same geographical location. So if you are out of town and you want to use your QuickBooks which is on your computer in the office, you can use it if you use a VPN.

Before you go and start using your QuickBooks on a VPN, you need to understand which networks QuickBooks recommends to use and which do not use.

Recommended Networks

  • LAN (Local Area Network)

It’s a network of computers which are in the same vicinity and are connected through a centralized device such as a Switch or Hub. This is the most common network used by QuickBooks users.

  • Terminal Services

Microsoft introduced Terminal Services also known as Remote Desktop Services (RDS) in Windows Server 2008 and earlier. On a Terminal Service one system will obtain the copy of QuickBooks and will be known as Server and other computers within the same boundary will be known as Clients.

  • Cloud Hosting

With the modernization of Wireless Technologies, all big Enterprises started getting rid of all the wires which were installed to connect the computers. Not only the Cloud Hosting Services prove to be cheaper, in the long run, they are also very easily maintained. Terminal Services and LAN are much more tedious than Cloud Hosting and if the company has a large number of Employees, Cloud Hosting is the only solution.

Not Recommended Networks

  • Virtual Private Network (VPNs) – QuickBooks has clearly mentioned on their website that they will not provide support for problems that arise due to the usage of QuickBooks on a VPN.
  • Wide Area Network (WAN) – This is probably the least secure option available as you do not want to share your QuickBooks over the Internet.
  • File Transfer Protocol (FTP) – It is used to transfer Data from an FTP Client to FTP server or vice versa. The Data is sent in plain text and is not encrypted. It is susceptible to Data theft and Damage.
  • Remote Area Network – Also known as RAN was a network method that allowed its users to transfer data via a wireless medium. Providing Remote access to anyone to your QuickBooks is not advised.
  • Network Attached Storage – This is basically a storage space which is shared over the network so that multiple terminals can access the data. This is highly not recommended.

All of the above-mentioned Networks are not recommended by Intuit. Intuit is only providing support for the problems which arise due to the use of recommended networks. It is not ideal if we talk about using QuickBooks over a network and not talk about QuickBooks Database Manager.

What’s QuickBooks Database Manager?

QuickBooks Database Manager is an inbuilt utility which can be configured to use Multi-User Access. This is also known as QuickBooks Database Server Manager. A network Data file is created on the Host computer and the other Users can access this Data file to use QuickBooks efficiently and safely. It is advised that if a company has 10 users or less to use QuickBooks Database Manager to use QuickBooks over a network.

Users have reported that when they use QuickBooks over a VPN even a simple action on QuickBooks takes a couple of minutes to process. Intuit, therefore, has a recommended list of networks to use QuickBooks on and a highly not recommended list as well and VPN is one of them. VPN might seem a more economical option but it is not safe. Users are advised to use Quick Cloud or Cloud Hosting as they are economical and safe.
