We just bought Enterprise and 2 licenses a month ago to be able to use QB's among both computers.
The office has 6 computers, but 2 of them are used for Quickbooks. We get disconnects sometimes 2-3 every hour.
It's a simple network.
The Host / Workstation is 192.168.0.8 and the other Workstation is .10.
Both are Windows 10, new computers on a cat5e network.
No matter what we've tried we get constant disconnects. Ping time between the 2 computers (who are 50 feet apart) is <1ms.
QB support has remoted in a dozen plus times and cannot figure out whats wrong.
Sharing is setup right, no permission issues they could find and other local services work great including a local NAS.
Really stuck and frustrated...

Thank you for responding Betty but I've been through all that 10 times with Quickbooks Support.
Either there is something incomparable with the hardware I'm using (Ubiquiti switch and 2 HP computers)
Or there is a serious bug with Quickbooks.
