Configuring Firewall Exceptions

If you have a firewall setup, you may be blocking outbound traffic to AWS Endpoints.

To use AWS Portal, you may need to add firewall exceptions to the following endpoints

It is recommended that you simply whitelist all AWS endpoints using the following:

*.amazonaws.com

If you can only whitelist specific endpoints for security reasons, the following ones must be white listed:

https://iam.amazonaws.com
sts.<region>.amazonaws.com
cloudformation.<region>.amazonaws.com
ec2.<region>.amazonaws.com
s3.<region>.amazonaws.com
http://checkip.amazonaws.com

where <region> is us-west-2 or whatever AWS region(s) you will be using in AWS Portal.
