The RightLink management agent makes outbound HTTP(S) connections to the RightScale infrastructure in order to receive configuration instructions. Optional RightScale features such as monitoring and frozen package repositories make outbound connections using other protocols.
When RightLink resides behind a firewall that performs egress filtering, the firewall must be configured to allow this outbound traffic.
This information applies to the following environment:
This information does not apply to:
Please review the firewall rules you will need to set up in order to enable communication between the RightScale platform and private clouds, end-users, and design asset repositories located inside the firewall as specified in Firewall Configuration Ruleset.
After completing this how-to, you will have configured your network firewall to allow API requests to your private cloud. You will be able to register your cloud with the RightScale platform, add your cloud to one or more RightScale accounts, and use our UI or API to make cloud-management requests.
RightScale operates network infrastructure in several geographical regions to provide fault tolerance. Your instances generally communicate with infrastructure in a nearby geographical region, but may be redirected to remote regions during network or cloud outages.

Your private cloud's API is normally exposed as an HTTPS endpoint on port tcp/443 though the protocol and port can change depending on how you have configured the cloud. RightScale must be able to make API requests to this endpoint from each RightScale-operated network range.
Assuming that your cloud is listening on port 443, you will need to create the following ingress rules:
|184.108.40.206/27||configurable (usually tcp/443)||Receive API requests from us-3|
|220.127.116.11/27||configurable (usually tcp/443)||Receive API requests from us-4|
|18.104.22.168/26||configurable (usually tcp/443)||Receive API requests from us-3|
|22.214.171.124/26||configurable (usually tcp/443)||Receive API requests from us-4|
|126.96.36.199/28||configurable (usually tcp/443)||Reserved for expansion|
|188.8.131.52/28||configurable (usually tcp/443)||Reserved for expansion|
|NOTE: No Ingress required for VMware vSphere Clouds or AWS VPC|
