Firewall - Linked Sites


Recommended Posts

I am not sure if you are aware that the NHS Internet Gateway has been flaky at best over the last couple of months.

In order to keep operating at a reason level of service we have rooted Hornbill Traffic though an alternative internet connection. This partly works but I believe that there may be some references to other 3rd party sites within the source code (for example <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto" rel="stylesheet">) which are still rooted through the NHS Gateway.

Do you have a list of these 3rd party link so that these could also be added to our firewall.

Hi @Kelvin,

This is the list of 3rd party URLs you might need to add.

Some of these (the optional ones) are needed only if you use them, specially when pasting for example a youtube video in a workspace.


Optional (if used)
https://twemoji.maxcdn.com/ (emojis)
https://i.ytimg.com/ (youtube preview image)
https://www.googleapis.com/youtube/ (youtube)
https://*.youtu.be (youtube)
https://*.youtube.com (youtube)
https://vimeo.com/api/  )(vomeo)
https://player.vimeo.com/ (vimeo)
https://*.prezi.com/ (prezi)
https://*.twitter.com/ (twitter)
https://giphy.com/ (giphy)
https://web.microsoftstream.com/ (microsoftstream)

* Note that some URLs include *. like http://*.hornbill.com you need to add any subdomain linked to that domain.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Kind regards,
