Web Security Service - WSS


For proxy forwarding, what IP address should I connect to?


The service is currently being upgraded (mid-January through the end of March 2021) and some of the IP addresses and host names used for proxy forwarding will change during this time.  This KB article will be deprecated once the current maintenance is complete.  Since this is a temporary KB article, a different KB article with DNS hostnames will replace this document.  Please review the WSS Status Page frequently for the locations that will be in maintenance.  For IP addresses for IPsec, please see https://knowledge.broadcom.com/external/article/167174/web-security-service-wss-ingress-and-egr.html .
