Re: Unable to synchronize Act 2009

Sorry about that... used to seeing 'Share Database' disable, but not 'Accept Incoming Syncs'.  It sounds like something is blocking the port when ACT! is attempting to open.


I would use the steps in the previous article to add exceptions to your firewall/Anti-virus software. 


Beyond adding exceptions to the firewall:

- Try using a different port (this will also require updating remotes to new port: Tools > Synchronization Panel > Connection Information)

- Has actsage.exe been disabled in the MSconfig startup options?  If yes, enable it and test
