Static IP addresses?

We are using AppVeyor to build, and on-prem Octopus to deploy for one of our customers intranet solution. The Octopus server is behind a firewall, and the IT-guys at our customer has to whitelist Appveyors outbound IP-addresses every time they changes, which seems to happen rather often. Is it possible to get a static IP on a project?

    Hi Tore,

    Understood. We constantly add capacity and expand to new data centers. Recent massive change of IPs was related to major servers upgrade (you might notice performance improvement last couple of months).

    We would be happy to buy couple of class C IPv4 networks and bring them with us everywhere, so customers upgrade firewalls once and forever, but this is unrealistic nowadays.

    Providing dedicated IP is good idea but there are some challenges with it. We have multiple locations (Liquid Web, Google cloud, AWS and recently added Azure). They are now interchangeable. If we implement dedicated IP within single cloud vendor, it will not stay if that particular cloud goes down or overloaded. And we definitely do not want to stick with a single cloud vendor.

    But we have a solution for you :) You can implement private build cloud specifically on Azure and place it behind Azure load balancer. Or setup your own Hyper-V server side-by-side to your Octopus server and setup private cloud on it. This server will be needed to have access to https://ci.appveyor,com, but should be be accessed from outside.

    We also plan to provide much less expensive concurrent jobs if you run builds on your own cloud. We can give more information if you are interested.

    Ilya.
