Resolution for Sage Error Code 20005

If the payment request is rejected while processing, you have to check Windows firewall is configured correctly and also check other security software, rather than configuring Sage 50.

To configure the security software properly, follow the steps below:

  1. Open Windows using an administrator account
  2. Now open the Control Paneland click on Windows Firewall
  3. Select Change Firewall Settings
  4. Click on Disable Firewallonly if necessary
  5. Disable all other security software on the system

Once you effectively executed these steps, you can try to process the request again and see whether the error is solved and continue with the following steps.

Important note: Disabling the Windows Firewall isn’t a preference because it makes the system defense-less from hacker attacks. So, it is important to make exceptions for the payment ports. Hence, configure the advanced firewall settings and make some stable rules.

To create Windows Firewall rules follow the instruction below:

  1. Open Search menu and look for Windows Defender Firewall with Advanced Settings
  2. Press on the inbound rules and type in the port and give the mane and description for the rule
  3. Save the created Rule
  4. Repeat the process again to make an Outbound. It is important to create both outbound and inbound rules as these will direct the outgoing and incoming request form the system.

Once you successfully complete these steps you can process any amount of transactions with ease.
