These instructions only apply to MSDE 2000 installations performed by ServiceLedger installation programs.


1) Go to Start->Run

2) Type in RegEdit

3) Click run or ok

4) Using the explorer, locate the following key:

My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\SERVICELEDGER\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\Tcp

5) Note the value of the TCPPort and TCPDynamicPorts fields

6) Close the registry editor


All unique values listed plus UDP port 1434 should be enabled for bypass in the local network on firewall and routers so that the client application can communicate with the specified server.  Additionally, the SQL Server should allow "File and Printer Sharing" for the local network (UDP/TCP 135-139) if referred to by machine name on the workstations.


ServiceLedger client applications may or may not use UDP port 60981 & TCP port 8080 depending on your configuration.  TCP Port 8080 is only for automation servers used by web portals ServiceLedger provides.  UDP 60981 is used for record update broadcasts and may not be necessary unless you notice refresh issues.
