Network Error

I am trying to sync my remote database to my Main database, and  I have enabled allow incoming syncs but when I try to synchronize from my remote database it says ACT is unable to connect to the sync server. Check to be sure accept incoming sync is enabled in the main database and that the Network sync service is running. Also be sure that you are connected to your network. Contact your administrator for assistance

Re: Network Error

Click on the start button and then select run

type in services.msc and click on OK

Go down and find the windows firewall and click on stop

Now try synch


If this works then you know you have a firewall blobking issue and then is an article in the knowledge base to get the settings correct.
