Change Firewall Setting
To resolve QuickBooks Error 2000 by altering firewall settings, you need to open Windows Firewall with Advanced Settings. Through advanced settings, you can set inbound and outbound rules for specific programs. Here, you need to set both inbound and outbound rules for QuickBooks. Make sure to allow QB through all required ports. If QuickBooks error 2000 still persists, then contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP.) Your ISP may be blocking certain ports. These ports will only allow access to QB if and only if allowed by your ISP.
