Connectivity Requirements

The following article outlines what is required for connectivity to the go deploy Hosted Labs environment.

Browsers

The following browsers are supported:

  1. Microsoft Edge 18

  2. Microsoft Edge (Chromium) 77+

  3. Chrome v76+

  4. Safari v11+

  5. Opera v63+

Ports

The following protocols and ports need to be open in order to access the lab environment:

  • Websockets (443)

  • HTTPS (443)

  • HTTP (80)

Firewall Rules & Exceptions

For environments behind a corporate firewall the following exceptions should be made:

  • Domain Names: *.godeploy.it, *.godeploylabs.com, godeployblob.blob.core.windows.net, godeploy.blob.core.windows.net, *.labsonline.it

  • IP Range: 195.74.52.129/24

  • IP Range: 193.105.188.162/24

  • IP Range: 43.143.119.0/24

Internet Connectivity

go deploy leverages Expressroute and the Microsoft Azure Core Network to reduce latency and improve performance. However, it is recommended that each student has a minimum of 1Mb wired low latency connectivity and whilst we support a wireless connection we cannot guarantee quality of the labs when using wireless technologies.

A http://www.speedtest.net/ test should be carried out by selecting a London or New York and ensure there is a latency of less than 200ms, although less than 150ms will give the best lab experience.

Our geo load balancer will determine the best connection for students but the above test gives a good indication of quality of the connection that will be made.

Other Information

It is recommended that the following domain DNS exceptions are made to firewalls due to the fact that we could change our IP Address at any time and without notification

For environments behind a corporate firewall the following exceptions should be made:

  • lms.godeploy.it

  • remote.godeploy.it

  • remote-ukn.labsonline.it

  • remote-ukc.labsonline.it

  • remote-usn.labsonline.it

  • remote-euw.labsonline.it

  • godeploy.blob.core.windows.net

  • godeployblob.blob.core.windows.net
