Networkfirewall Exceptions for Opera-autoupdate

  • Hey there fellow Opera-tors,

    i want to ask if there is anything new to the topic of "Which IP-Networks/Domainnames/Ports do i have to whitelist in my Firewall to make Opera-Update work?"
    I already created a thread back in 2018 but sadly didnt get any resolution for my problem.

    See here: https://forums.opera.com/topic/27491/sophos-firwall-blocking-opera-browser-from-updating

    So that you dont get me wrong, it has nothing to do with local firewall (Windows Firewall) or some antivirus blocking.

    We use a network firewall from the vendor "Sophos" which does all security-stuff in our organizations network. While we have the possibility to disable the firewall completely for certain users or computer (which make Opera autoupdate work) we cannot have this as a solution for everyone.

    Our current "workaround" is manually downloading opera installer and perform a manual update. Better then nothing, but we really want to have opera to be updated automatically.

    Maybe we can get some connection to an Opera-Dev which can tell me (and everyone else) which things have to be configured as an exception to make that autoupdate work.

    Would be pretty nice!
    Thank all of you in advance!

    Opera is best 😉
