    Map Point Web Service & Sonic Wall Firewall

    We use the Sonic Wall firewall to control our internet access. The firewall is set up by our admins to block all traffic apart from specified addresses.

    We use the Map Point web service to visualise our data but it the firewall appears to be blocking the maps when they are returned to us. If we allow open access through the firewall then the maps work fine.

    I have supplied the URL of the Map Point web services to our admins and they have allowed these IP’s through but to no avail. To compound the problem, there is a bug in the firewall’s logging software which is not recording the IP’s of the addresses being blocked! Very annoying!

    I was hoping that someone could provide me with a definitive list of addresses that the Map Point web service uses so that we could add them to our firewall.

    Much appreciated, I'll give the Firefox/Firebug idea a try.

    Thanks,
