    Security is the concern here. Are all these posts guaranteed to originate from the same IP address?
    Your example appears to use port 80. Is iFormBuilder unable to post using SSL?

    Hi Guy, the requests will not come from the same IP address as there are many servers which host the application. The example does show "http", but "https" is supported as well as long as the receiving server is setup for it.

    How do we know what range of IP addresses to allow through our firewall? I assume this information is not published to the public.

    Ideally you whitelist by domain and not an IP range because that can change over time.

    The data security officers on our campus do not allow domain whitelisting because of the potential for dns poisoning. They only allow the whitelisting of ip address ranges.

    Hey Rtims, you might consider having a server which sits between iFormBuilder and your campus network which acts as a pass through. This would allow you to whitelist the IP of the server you control outside the campus network, and ensures as the infrastructure scales the requests continue to come through.

    Unfortunately, we don't have the budget to support additional servers.

    Hey Rtims, AWS has a free tier that might be able to help you out. Worth taking a look if its just used as a passthrough.
