Sometimes, a site’s IT policy will require that BroadSign Server’s IP addresses be explicitly hard-coded into the firewall rules. We understand that sometimes it is necessary to comply with a third-party IT policy when piggybacking on another network. However, please take note of the warning below.

If absolutely required, the IP range of the primary BroadSign Server is:

    • 216.187.127.1 to 216.187.127.254 (i.e. 216.187.127.1/24 in CIDR notation)

In addition, the following IPs are for disaster recovery purposes and should also be added to any firewall IP-based firewall rules:

    • 54.86.56.66
    • 54.210.129.218
    • 54.210.236.85
    • 54.88.254.12
    • 54.210.246.96
