(*) Custom Remote IP Address
Rules marked with * in the Remote address field allow connections from the following private networks, as defined in RFC 1918 (https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1918)
* 10.0.0.0/8
* 172.16.0.0/12
* 192.168.0.0/16

It is recommended that administrators do not alter or override these rules to increase access beyond the local network.

If an existing version of AccountRight SE is installed, a new installer will alter the Windows Firewall rules for both the AccountRight Locator Service and AccountRight Library Service to match those above.

Prevent firewall blocking auto updates

To prevent your firewall blocking access to the auto updates site for AccountRight Server Edition, whitelist this URL in your firewall settings: https://downloads.ar-services.myob.com/

Windows Shares

AddAdd

The AccountRight Server Edition also creates the following shares: 

Share name

Folder path

AccountRight.Backup

C:\Users\Public\Documents\MYOB\My AccountRight Files\.backups

AccountRight.Export

C:\Users\Public\Documents\MYOB\My AccountRight Files\.exports

AccountRight.Import

C:\Users\Public\Documents\MYOB\My AccountRight Files\.imports

AccountRight.Migrate

C:\Users\Public\Documents\MYOB\My AccountRight Files\.migrates

AccountRight.Restore

C:\Users\Public\Documents\MYOB\My AccountRight Files\.restores

AccountRight.Upgrade

C:\Users\Public\Documents\MYOB\My AccountRight Files\.upgrades

If you have changed your library location the folder path will be different than the defaults shown above.
 

During the creation of these shares the Windows Operating System may create extra Windows Firewall rules to enable access to these shares from the local network.
