Lock down IP addresses in MigrationWiz

When performing an email migration, some customers might need to restrict access to a defined set of IP addresses, typically for security reasons. This article provides the range of IP addresses from which our MigrationWiz tool can connect, and instructions on locking down your migration to only these specific IP addresses.

Note: Because of the restricted IP range, migration speeds are not optimal. Consider this when planning your migration timeline.

IP address ranges

  • 192.34.111.0 to 192.34.111.63 (aka 192.34.111.0/26) new
  • 208.115.102.1 to 208.115.102.63 (aka 208.115.102.1/26)
  • 198.104.255.65 to 198.104.255.126 (aka 198.104.255.64/26)
  • 4.53.159.1 to 4.53.159.126 (aka 4.53.159.0/25)
  • 216.176.189.162 to 216.176.189.188
  • 198.104.202.70
  • 4.53.158.186

To lock down your migration profile

Now that you have the range of IP addresses, you need to lock down your migration profile. If your migration is assisted, your migration specialist performs these actions. If you are performing the migration yourself, complete the following steps.

  1. Log in to the full version of MigrationWiz.

  2. If you have already created a migration, click Manage Connectors. If you are creating a new migration, click Create a Connector.

  3. In the top-right corner of the window that opens, click Advanced Options.

  4. Click the Performance tab.

  5. Set the Preferred Data Center value to North America.

  6. Click the Support tab and type the following text in the blank field: ProcessingRequirement=Local

  7. Save all changes.

All connections through your migration will now come only from the IP address ranges listed in this article.
