Important reminder!

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS (but not Engagement CS) permanently expired on March 1, 2017.

For details, see CSA license expiration 2017 – frequently asked questions.

Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of these CSA modules.

Complete the following steps to enable your computer to connect to the servers at our network of secure data centers.

  1. Open CSA and choose File > CS Connect.
  2. Click the Communications Setup button.
  3. Click the Proxy Settings button.
  4. Mark the Use Proxy Server checkbox.
  5. Click the Manually configure proxy server option and enter the HTTP proxy address and port number for your network's proxy server, or click the Use Windows settings option. (You can view the proxy address and port number for your network's proxy server by opening Internet Explorer and choosing Tools > Internet Options, clicking the Connections tab, and then clicking the LAN settings button.)
  6. If your proxy software requires server authentication, mark the Proxy Authentication checkbox in the Proxy Setup dialog and enter the appropriate user name and password.
  7. Click OK twice, and then click Close.
