[QODBC-Desktop] How to use QuickBooks Data remotely via Ibiz Connector
Posted by Juliet (QODBC Support) on 03 November 2009 07:11 AM
Note: Ibiz no longer offered an SSL socket (for web apps) so we went with Intuit's RDS component, but you can still use the ibiz connector if you do the followings.
Configuration of Client Machine
Make modification to file odbcinst.ini
On the client machine that has QODBC installed on it locate the odbcinst.ini file, it should be in a directory:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\ QODBC Driver for QuickBooks
Then make the following modification to the file (make a copy of it first):
[QODBC Driver (32 bit)]
When you go into the QODBC setup screen you should see a new tab "Remote Connector". Also, make sure you uncheck Use RDS Client/Server on the RDS tab if you have checked that.
Configuration of Server Machine
Go to: www.qodbc.com\download\RemoteConnector\connector.exe and download to the desktop of the server that has QuickBooks on it.
Setup of using QuickBooks Data remotely via QODBC
