IP addresses of build servers changing

We are using appveyor to build, test and deploy a range of projects to our servers.

Since we have a policy to block all traffic except services we use, we open ports against these servers so we can use AppVeyor's service. No problem.

However, when new build servers are added to the list, we only find out because our builds fail. Is there a way to find the IPs of new servers without visiting https://www.appveyor.com/docs/build-environment/ ? We also don't know if any of them have been shut down.

We could build a bot/scraper to look at the above, but that is obviously not a great strategy for our builds to rely on. Is there a URL/service we can call to get just a list of IPs, is there a mail service that provides it or something similar?

    Sure, we understand this and actually notify people. Please subscribe to the "Technical updates" at https://ci.appveyor.com/notifications.
