QuickBooks Cannot Communicate With The Company File

QB cannot communicate eror

If you see the error message above, try turning both your host and your remote computers off and on again. In our experience, this has resolved the issue nearly every time and is likely forcing the QuickBooks network and database managers to restart and communicate correctly with the company file. If the reboot does not work, take a look at Intuit’s support article here:

Not sure how to reboot your host remotely?

Take a look at our support article here showing you how to manage your host. You will need to be an admin user or ask your admin user to do the restart for you.
