QuickBooks hosting mode is off error mainly gets triggered when the Firewall security configuration does not let QuickBooks Desktop connect to the internet. To troubleshoot this error, all you need is to change the Firewall security configuration for QuickBooks by following the steps given below:
 Go to the Windows Start button on your computer.
 Search for “Windows Firewall” and then select Windows Firewall.
 Click Advanced Settings at the left pane.
 Click right Inbound Rules. Then select the option named ‘New Rule.’
 Choose Port from the on-screen options and then click Next.
 Make certain TCP is selected.
 In the Specific local ports space, enter the ports as per your QuickBooks year version.
 Select the Next button after entering the ports.
 Ensure the option named ‘Allow the Connection’ is selected. Then click Next.
 If notified, make certain all profiles are marked. Click Next.
 Create a new rule after that.
Important: Give this a rule a name like “QBPorts(year)."
 Afterward, hit the Finish button.
 Go through the above steps again to create outbound rules this time.
