Company firewall prevents me from connecting to the host

I can not follow the course because the system admins will not allow an except to our firewall rules. I plan to go through the material until the course ends and do what I can. I’m not worried about a grade for the course.

Hi Joseph_01456,

Thanks for continuing with the course. Here is one thing you can do if you can at least once connect to our cluster, download the data and can import in your local mongodb instance. Then you don’t need to connect to it again and again.

If the above post is not useful, just let me know if I can help anywhere in the course.



As expected, my ping and telnet fails.
Using shows as below. Is this a pass or fail as far as the firewall test is concern?

Outgoing port tester

This server listens on all TCP ports, allowing you to test any outbound TCP port.

You have reached this page on port 27017 .

Your network allows you to use this port. (Assuming that your network is not doing advanced traffic filtering.)

Network service: unknown
Your outgoing IP: <-- dummy IP that I type in :slight_smile:

Hi Edwin_49627,

That means you are allowed to use port 27017.
