  • @nvmjustagirl thank you for the reply. So i dont use the adblock from opera, but i made the changes like you said, plus i added IP-Range - TCP in my Firewallrule. Sadly, the updater still wont work... 😕

    The Sophos link you gave me, is for the "AntiVirus" of Sophos. What is installed on the client to manage them. We only use the Firewall (Proxy) from Sophos, which is like a "classic" Firewall. I can just add something like IP's and IP-Ranges, URL's and stuff to create an exception for certain services or programs. The AntiVirus can give a local "Firewall" to the Client, but thats not what we have. On our company, we just have 1 firewall as a gateway to the internet (and VPN).

    Thank you very much in advance!

  • @towerplease @towerplease im sorry yahave 'n troubles with opera..

    the notes about opera_autoupdate.exe in the above post are kinna same as opera.exe..

    so here sum examples.. even tho sum stuff may be block 'n by your firewall..

    Example Opera folder structure

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\launcher.exe

    = launcher.exe is in the root directory
    = launcher.exe only points to opera.exe thats in a different folder
    = firewall rule does not ask for permission for launcher.exe ? - (This is really where opera.exe needs to be.. lol)

    Example Opera folder structure

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\54.0.2952.64\opera.exe

    = opera.exe is not in the root directory but needs firewall rule
    = firewall rule asks for connection to start process opera.exe & its connections
    = opera keeps changing the folder of opera.exe after each update
    = ya may need to change the directory path to the sub-folder's name that contains opera.exe in your firewall

    wish Sophos could wildcard..

    What on Earth.. is the reasoning behind this folder structure ? ! lol

    maybe they are meant to be like that.. so that Opera or a user can roll back to a previous version if something should go wrong.. *dam if i know.. esp with firewall rules involved..

    when a typical Windows program is updated, the new version just replaces the old version.. the new version stays in the same place

    i will post a few Ips for opera.exe sumtime later.. if ya want..

  • @towerplease
    opera.exe = vpn on = (that is if you decide to use opera's vpn instead of company's vpn..
    = Ip Range - Tcp = Asia = Tcp Port 443
    = Ip Range - Tcp = Europe = Tcp Port 443
    = Ip Range - Tcp = Americas = Tcp Port 443

    umm.. i see this one sumtimes.. may see it when vpn is off..
    = Ip Range - Tcp = Tcp Port 443

    opera_autoupdate.exe = vpn on or off
    = Ip Range - Tcp = Tcp Port 443 = + your DNS TOO (i think)

    Note - sumtimes if when opera vpn does not connect.. or sumthin not right.. its cause Akamai Technologies, Inc wanna connect 1st.. (Big Brother i guess).. lol not always but sumtimes..

    Ip Range - tcp = tcp port 80

  • Hey @nvmjustagirl

    so... i added all the IP-Ranges you said. But still the updates gives me a damn Error 😕
    I also was looking a bit in our FW-Logs, but i cannot find anything wrong, i get some packets "ALLOWED" by the Opera-Rule. There are only 2 IP's Blocked. 1 Which is from America, and whon from "KabelDeutschland". But i think they are not associated with Opera.

    Is not any Opera dev around the forum? He should know, which Networks, IP-Ranged and stuff needs to be unblocked. Maybe there is a kind of "Logviewer" for Opera which can show what the Problem is while Updating...

    Thank you very much in advance!

  • @towerplease Did you try checking the Opera updater log?

  • @towerplease i got to think 'n even if ya don't have all the ips, you do know the ports which ya could allow any ips..

    and i think ya pretty much got these basic ports for opera configured in your firewall (your udp dns port - tcp port 80 - tcp port 443)

    so what if opera.exe & opera_autoupdate.exe has got or needs listen 'n port..

    i've loaned my my test 'n laptop for the weekend..

    but from what i saw both need listen 'n ports.. i can only see them for a split sec.. lol

    i can't see port numbers but do know it the local port..

    opera.exe need a Local Udp port
    opera_autoupdate.exe needs Local Udp Ports too..

    add it to firewall rules to see if it helps..

    i've got sum older ips i found that i never see n e more.. but i will post them later.. when i get that laptop back..

  • @towerplease i never see these Opera Ips lately

    Ip Range - tcp = tcp Port 443
    Ip Range - tcp = tcp Port 443
    Ip Range - tcp = tcp Port 443
    Ip Range - tcp = tcp Port 443

  • @leocg Thank you for the reply, where are the logs stored? I can't find any in C:\Program Files\Opera. That Logs would be very interesting!

    Thank you in advance!

  • @nvmjustagirl Thank you for the reply!

    I have added the IP's you mentioned, and added everything with UDP too -> (HTTP/HTTPS 80/443 -> UDP and TCP)
    But its not working, still getting "The update could not be downloaded" error.

  • @leocg I found the log in C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable, but the autoupdater log is empty. 😕

  • Anyone wanna solve the Problem? Any opera Dev has to know which URL/IP/Port needs to be opened to get updater working. 😕

  • @towerplease I've mentioned it to some Opera folks, but no response.
