Regarding whitelisting public IPs - rexpsunny - 05-10-2017 02:13 PM

Hi All

I would like to get public IPs of all Dulles Desktop and Mobile instances to whitelist those IPs in the firewall. How can I get it?

I see https://www.webpagetest.org/getTesters.php is showing only private IPs

The Dulles agents all egress through the same server that runs the web UI:

It's static and safe to rely on (hasn't changed in ~8 years). It may change at some point in the future if I move hosting or upgrade to gigabit fiber but neither is expected to happen anytime soon.

An (admittedly hacky) way to get it is to run a test for one of the "what is my IP" pages and just look at the screenshot ;-)

Is this still the case? Has anything changed? We have some clients we use webpagetest to run mobile audits for, and an increasingly number of clients are blocking bots, want to find the best way to whitelist the webpage test user agent / bot / ip address, thanks!!!

Sorry, public instance IP changed a few weeks ago when the connection was upgraded. It is now (and will be for the forseable future as I have no plans to do anything with the connectivity after the most recent upgrade).

And don't ask me why Verizon couldn't keep the same IP block for a connection to the same address - I gave up on trying to understand their back-end processes years ago (and yes, I asked since I had the previous IP pool for ~10 years).
