This article will provide an overview on configuring proxy access or firewalls and endpoint protection to allow the AutoEntry Desktop Sync App to operate.

Applies To

  • Sage 50 users.

  • QuickBooks Desktop users.

Proxy Access

  • On the first install, the AutoEntry Sync App runs as the Local System account (NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM).

  • You may need to configure proxy access or remove old configuration data that has been added to this account in the past.

  • Alternatively, create a new domain account and run AutoEntry Sync under that account.

Checking Local System Proxy Configuration

You can check proxy settings for NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM by running Internet Explorer as this account.

  1. Get PsExec (standalone exe, not an installer).

  2. Run cmd as admin, then run this command:
    psexec -s -i "%programfiles%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

  3. Check the proxy configuration in IE.
