Greenshades updates firewall IP addresses

Posted on September 12th, 2019

Greenshades Software hosts a variety of web pages that are intended for client use, such as GreenEmployee.com, GreenshadesOnline.com, and DownloadMyForm.com. Additionally, many of our software applications run on client-site workstations or servers but are powered by an Internet Technology called “Web Services” found at one of the earlier addresses or Greenshades.com.

In September 2019, to provide the best client experience and most reliable software, part of the Greenshades cloud will be moving to Microsoft Azure. While we expect this change to have little to no noticeable impact with your regular usage of the Greenshades offerings, if your organization has previously allowed port 80 and 443 access to the Greenshades IP addresses, please note that you will need to whitelist additional IP addresses.

If a security system located at a client site is obstructing communication with Greenshades webservers, it is unlikely that Greenshades websites or applications will function properly. Therefore, we recommend reviewing the addresses with your organization’s IT department as soon as possible.

The Greenshades Firewall Guide has been updated to reflect the additional IP addresses, which has also been provided below.

Communication must be allowed across ports 80 and 443 to the following IP Ranges:
216.134.212.192 through 216.134.212.207
209.34.252.9 through 209.34.252.14

NEW IP addresses added in September 2019:
52.167.187.104
52.177.163.161
52.232.223.54
52.254.105.236 through 52.254.105.239

We thank you for taking the time to review this communication, and we look forward to continuing to provide you with the best experience possible.
