Firewall Information

From Car and Driving
Jump to: navigation, search

Our videos are streamed from several HTTP servers; normally this works fine with no problems, but we have had issues with corporate firewalls being configured to block all streaming video (mostly to prevent Youtube use in work). If you need to whitelist our servers on your firewall, the servers are:

 f1.caranddriving.com    37.188.123.142
 f2.caranddriving.com    37.188.122.64
 f3.caranddriving.com    46.38.190.234
 f4.caranddriving.com    31.222.183.6
 f5.caranddriving.com    37.188.123.43
 f6.caranddriving.com    5.79.19.43
 f7.caranddriving.com    31.222.183.18
 f8.caranddriving.com    31.222.185.86

All servers stream video on port 80, the HTTP port, and throttle the streaming rate according to the available bandwidth, serving a lower quality version of the video if needed.

In addition, www.caranddriving.com 95.138.168.153 serves images, and occasionally flash videos.

We do change these IP addresses from time to time, so if your network stops working and you've had to put whitelists on your firewall, please check back here to ensure that the IP addresses haven't changed.
