BinaryLane mPanel and service IPs
To fully utilise the BinaryLane platform, you may need to create firewall rules to allow traffic to and from your servers. This includes allowing connectivity with our performance statistics server so that memory and disk utilisation can be graphed, our KMS for maintaining a valid license on our Windows VPS installs, and the 'ping' check in mPanel to function when using strict firewall rules.
This article covers the service IPs only. For guidance on managing firewall rules to allow traffic to and from your servers, see this article: https://support.binarylane.com.au/support/solutions/articles/11000033088-external-firewall.
For the mPanel performance graphs to display memory and disk utilisation, you'll need to allow traffic to the following destination IP address and port:
UDP Port: 21000
KMS for Windows VPS licensing
To maintain a valid license on our Windows VPS installs, the VPS will automatically attempt to contact our KMS server and activate or check the Windows license once per week.
While this is not required for the Windows VPS to function, connectivity with the KMS is required at least once every 180 days to maintain a valid Windows license.
The KMS server is located at the following destination IP address and port:
TCP Port: 1688
Ping Check in mPanel
The ping check in mPanel is used to determine if your server is online or not. This is done by sending an ICMP ping request to your server. If the ping request is successful, the server is considered online. If the ping request fails, the server is flagged as being offline.
The ping check is performed from the following locations and IP addresses:
