Troubleshooting Solutions:  QuickBooks Error 12031, 12029, 12009, 12007, and 12002


QuickBooks error 12031, 12029, 12009, 12007, and 12002 typically indicate network connectivity issues, preventing QuickBooks from accessing the internet for updates or communication with servers. Here's how to troubleshoot and resolve these errors:


  1. Check Internet Connection: Ensure your internet connection is stable and working properly. Try accessing other websites or applications to confirm connectivity.
  2. Configure Firewall and Security Software: Adjust firewall and security settings to allow QuickBooks access to the internet. Add QuickBooks to the list of trusted applications or temporarily disable firewall and security software to see if it resolves the issue.
  3. Update QuickBooks: Ensure you're using the latest version of QuickBooks. Updates often include fixes for known issues and compatibility improvements that can resolve connectivity errors.
  4. Use QuickBooks Connection Diagnostic Tool: Intuit provides a Connection Diagnostic Tool to diagnose and troubleshoot network-related issues. Download and run this tool to identify and fix connectivity problems.
  5. Check Internet Explorer Settings: QuickBooks utilizes Internet Explorer settings for internet connectivity. Ensure that Internet Explorer is set as your default browser and that SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is enabled. Clear browser cache and temporary internet files.
  6. Configure Internet Explorer Security Settings: Adjust Internet Explorer security settings to the default level or lower to ensure compatibility with QuickBooks. Navigate to Internet Options > Security tab, set the security level to Medium-High, and add as a trusted site.
  7. Check Router and Network Configuration: Ensure your router and network configuration are set up correctly. Check for any network issues such as DNS (Domain Name System) resolution problems or IP address conflicts.
  8. Restart Router and Computer: Sometimes, simply restarting your router and computer can resolve temporary network issues. Turn off both devices, wait for a few minutes, and then power them back on.
  9. Use a Different Network: If possible, try connecting to a different network to see if the issue persists. This can help determine if the problem is specific to your current network configuration.
  10. Contact Internet Service Provider (ISP): If you've tried all the troubleshooting steps and continue to experience connectivity issues, contact your ISP for assistance. They can help diagnose and resolve any network-related problems affecting your internet connection.

By following these troubleshooting solutions, you can effectively resolve QuickBooks error 12031, 12029, 12009, 12007, and 12002, restoring proper network connectivity and allowing QuickBooks to function without interruption. Remember to update QuickBooks regularly and maintain a stable internet connection for optimal performance.
