Why do GNUCASH have to connect to the internet when it is started. What info is exchanged and why. I am very reluctant to expose my financial data to the outside wiorld.

GnuCash's supporting libraries make loopback connections to a server on the local host to exchange information. Depending on the machine's configuration, that connection attempt might not be to the internal network interface, but mistakenly to the external network interface, but for the local machine, which would appear as an "internet" connection attempt. I'm guessing you're on Windows, where we've had reports that connections are attempted to a couple of specific IP addresses during the installation process; see <http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=363648#c21> and <http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=363648#c25>. This situation is still being debugged.
More generally, you might find the gnucash-user mailing list to be a better avenue for help. Jsled 20:08, 18 September 2007 (EDT)

Thank you very much. My fault, I had not looked carefully at Comodo message. Request to communicate not to the internet but 127.0.0.1. Sorry about that and thanks.

Printing an Account

How can you print all the movements in an account? Do you need a report for that? Where can I find one, since I have no idea of how to write one? --Vittek 14:42, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Importing Files

Hi I have just downloaded Gnu cash coming from Microsoft money . I am trying to import my previous bank statements into it from my bank . I have looked on the help files and it says there is a section on importing Qif files But I cant find it any ideas

Why doesn't online quoting work?

This section seems to be badly out of date. The current F::Q version is 1.18. The new version should obviate the patching procedure described, which is only valid for Linux and not for Windows.
