IP range for analytics

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Problem: our firewall is blocking traffic to google analytics for apps that are in our dmz, per internal policy. We can allow traffic out but only by IP address and so would need to know the IP range behind GA.

 

Question 1: does anyone know how I can get this range and if it is even practical to do so?

Question 2: if not, are there any suggestions for a work-around?  If I could proxy it through an internal API that would satisfy the security requirements though I'm not sure this can realistically be done.  Other thoughts?

 

Thanks in advance.

The actual endpoints used are:
http://www.google-analytics.com/collect
https://ssl.google-analytics.com/collect

You'd have to look up the ranges behind those (sub)domains.

Hi Mike,

Will the IP range for those address be a fixed range? Or is this range dynamic?

In other words, if we look up the range today and configure our firewall accordingly, are we sure that this range will still be valid tomorrow?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Regards,

Jimmy

Hey Jimmy,

I have no idea at all, sorry. I suspect the addresses would be fairly static, but they could potentially change over time or be part of a pool used by Google for the same purpose (failover).
