Microsoft online services: FQDN firewall openings
article #947, updated 24 days ago

Some firewalls have FQDN capability (e.g., Watchguards), which makes careful rule creation practical for a behemoth like Microsoft Office 365 and all of its related services. The info below is condensed from here. I have omitted a very few items (e.g., ports 25, 465, and 993, and *.msn.com), for reasons which I hope are reasonably obvious.

Create one rule with these ports:

80, TCP
443, TCP
587, TCP
3478, UDP
5223, TCP
50000-59999, TCP and UDP

to the following list of locations, and it is done.

*.office365.com
*.office.com
*.office.net
*.microsoftonline.com
*.msocdn.com
*.microsoft.com
*.live.com
*.onmicrosoft.com
*.msedge.net

United Parcel Service and Firewalls
article #1019, updated 83 days ago

A page has been recently deleted from the UPS web site, which included:

If I connect to UPS servers through a firewall, are there any known issues?

Because the response from the UPS server may show as unsolicited to your firewall software, you may need to configure your firewall software to accept messages from our unique range of UPS IP address ranges: “207.24.0.*”

At this writing, an in-site search on http://ups.com and a Google search still brings up the page reference, but the page is gone.
