Peplink InControl 2 Required Firewall Updates

Peplink's InControl 2 is an online, cloud based, management utility for Peplink routers and access points. InControl lets individual users or IT departments easily manage their Peplink deployments from a single user interface. InControl lets users push firmware and configuration updates, update access points, manage and track bandwidth across multiple sites, and perform fleet management on GPS enable devices.

Today Peplink has announced their InControl platform will be expanding with a new range of IP addresses. These IP's are how Peplink routers and access points can talk to InControl for updates and remote management. If you are using a Peplink as a standalone router with no firewall, there is nothing you have to do. However, if you are using your Peplink with an active firewall or behind another firewall, you must allow the following IP addresses and ports through.

Existing server IP addresses: 
  • 54.213.17.185 
  • 54.218.62.163 
Additional server IP addresses: 
  • 54.201.63.99 
  • 54.69.133.25 
  • 54.174.153.41 
  • 54.174.232.241 
  • 54.169.188.216 
  • 54.169.190.249 
Outgoing ports: 
  • UDP port 5246  
  • TCP port 443
