Using the Remote Connector

The Remote Connector can be used to read and write to QuickBooks Point of Sale in situations where direct COM access to QuickBooks Point of Sale is not available (e.g., ASP.NET, Java, or QuickBooks Point of Sale on a remote machine). Follow the procedure below to connect to QuickBooks Point of Sale for the first time through the Remote Connector:

  1. If you have not already done so, download the Remote Connector from here and install the Remote Connector on the machine where QuickBooks Point of Sale is installed.
  2. Open the company file you want to connect to in QuickBooks Point of Sale using an administrator account in single-user mode.
  3. Open the Remote Connector from the system tray and add a user on the Users tab. Enter a User and Password and select the level of access in the Data Access menu.

    Note: The Remote Connector does not use the User and Password properties to access QuickBooks Point of Sale; the User and Password properties authenticate the user to the Remote Connector. Authentication to QuickBooks Point of Sale is handled based on the ApplicationName property.

  4. When you first connect, a dialog will appear in QuickBooks Point of Sale prompting you to authorize the application. After authorizing the application, you can then execute commands to QuickBooks Point of Sale. Specify the URL of the Remote Connector and the User and Password. By default, the Remote Connector connects to the currently open company file.
  5. If you want to access QuickBooks Point of Sale when QuickBooks Point of Sale is not running, save the company file information for the user. The Remote Connector will then automatically open QuickBooks Point of Sale in the background with the company file for that user.

Note that if the QuickBooks Point of Sale UI is open, you can only connect to that company file. Additionally, note that the user permissions you run the Remote Connector under must match the user permissions you run QuickBooks Point of Sale under. The Remote Connector installation process installs the Remote Connector as a service under the current user account.

How do I Connect to QuickBooks Point of Sale over SSL/TLS?

You can enable SSL/TLS on the Advanced tab.

You will also need to send your public key certificate to the adapter. You can do so by setting the SSLServerCert property.
