What is QuickBooks Web Connector

Web Connector is a Microsoft Windows web-based application that enables web services to exchange data with QuickBooks Desktop products. Web connector and QuickBooks use the same local network and both are installed on the same machine.

It generates QWC files that help the users to connect more to establish a relationship between your applications and the remoter version of QuickBooks.

The QuickBooks Web Connector (QBWC) is a go-between application that allows qbXML and qbposXML to pass between a Web-based application (implementing a standard Simple Object Access Protocol [SOAP]-based Web service interface) and QuickBooks financial software or QuickBooks Point of Sale.

Because all communication is initiated by the Web Connector running on the system with QuickBooks, we avoid opening firewall ports. Communication with Web services can be automatically scheduled or simply initiated at the user’s convenience.
