Per the Broadcom notice that IP's are changing for "SMPE receive orders" after March 11th, is this pertinent for FTPS or HTTPS connections?
Release : 6.0
Component : Chorus Software Manager
The update is to the static IP address for the eapi.broadcom.com server that communicates via https only. The recommendation is to use the hostname (eapi.broadcom.com), but if the static IP 126.96.36.199 address is being used then it will need to be changed to 188.8.131.52.
It is the download server (rdownloads.broadcom.com) that can communicate via sftp or ftps; with no change to its IP address: 184.108.40.206.
