What IP/domains do I need to unblock from my filtering software to allow Canvas/Instructure through.

Hi Doug McClure...
Unfortunately, I don't have an answer for you, but I did want to check in with you.

Have you been able to find any answers to your question on your own since you posted this question? If so, could you share that with us here in the Community? Or, if you are still seeking assistance with this question, please post a message below so that members of the Community can continue to help you with your question. Looking forward to hearing from you soon, Doug!
I managed to dig up an old email with some of this information:

Being a hoarder, I was just getting ready to search for my own archived email from 5 years ago. Thanks for saving me the search and possible injury from a stack of junk falling on my head! And I won't even mention all the vermin that have infested my archives!
