[resolved] Server firewall assistance required (4 posts)

    We have installed 3.4.2 on a Plesk server with NamesCo and the admin system is running very slowly.

    It seems like a firewall issue and knowing how restrictive the NamesCo standard setup is only reinforces this idea.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of the required settings to create a firewall rule on the Plesk box please?

    I already have a set of stock IP addresses, etc. from NamesCo but as yet the problem hasn't been solved by them:
    Allow outgoing to,,,,,,,,,, on ports 80/tcp, 443/tcp

    Thanks in advance for any assistance available.

    Hi Lord Sprocket,

    Did you resolve this with Namesco?

    Hi David

    We did, although not with Namesco (or Plesk!), it turned out to be the client installed theme that was calling home for updates on every page load. I forget now if we stopped it calling home or added the necessary ip address to the firewall, but either way it resolved.

    Hope that helps in some way.
