SUMMARY

When you try to connect to the Lacerte Web site or to download updates of the Lacerte Tax program on your computer that is running ISA Server and that is based on either version 2000 or version 2003 of Microsoft Small Business Server (SBS), you receive an error message. This problem occurs when an individual port number is not defined for an inbound and outbound protocol. In this scenario, an individual IP address is also not defined for exceptional proxy settings. This article describes how to define an individual port number and an individual IP address in the local area network (LAN) settings.

SYMPTOMS

Assume that the Lacerte Tax program is installed and configured on your computer that is running Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server and that is either SBS 2000-based or is SBS 2003-based. When you try to connect to the Lacerte Web site or to download updates, you receive the following error message:
Connection Error: 10057

CAUSE

This problem occurs because ISA Server must have a customized configuration to work with the Lacerte Tax program.
