Configuring a Firewall for SkySync
SkySync requires HTTPS communication to "api.portalarchitects.com" during activation to verify your software license key. When SkySync starts, it will also communicate with "api.portalarchitects.com" to determine if there has been any published updates to the software.
Communication with cloud storage platforms vary, but in general requires standard web (port 80) and HTTPS (port 443) to be allowed through the firewall.
Please refer to the specific storage vendors' documented firewall requirements that are typically listed in their support forums.
