I can see the server but can't connect to the server or if you get a network error.

The reason is your firewall do not allow the connection to the server.

Test it by turning the firewall off.




Next go to “ allow a program or feature through windows firewall “

You must allow Smart-it and Firebird through. See images below. Remember to click on graphic

Windows Firewall

Location of the files:

C:\Program Files\Smart-It+ 2.0\Backend\BackendService.exe

C:\Program Files\Smart-It+ 2.0\Backend\dbserver\bin\fb_inet_server.exe

C:\Program Files\Smart-It+ 2.0\Backend\dbserver\bin\fbserver.exe


Ports used:

TCP: 55503, 55504 UDP: 55502



Firewall or anti-virus software may show alert dialogues related to this installation. Please allow any Smart-It programs to proceed if you see one of these alerts by selecting an option such as:


- Yes

- Allow

- Permit


Some configurations may require that you adjust settings in these firewall and anti virus products to ensure the best possible performance with SI+.

Configure your firewalls so that they do not interfere with SI+. An incorrectly-configured firewall can stop SI+ from working.


Network Error

Make sure that your Firewall give access to Smart-It.

Try typing in localhost in place of the server name.


Small Business Server 2003  -- SBS 2003

Please make sure that you have installed service pack 2 for business server 2003 otherwise .Net Framework 4 won't install


When I try to login to the Server, it searches and then says, the Operation has timed out.

or you get a message that says: Unable to complete network request.

This problem can manifest itself when the internet goes down.


First try to login again, sometimes the connections are just slow.


Disable your anti-virus program. If SI+ works after disabling the anti-virus program then you know that the problem is with your anti-virus firewall settings.

Remember to check your firewall settings first.
