Our Global IP’s host NT-ware websites and associated product download materials. Please ensure you allow these sites if you are restricting traffic from and or to your organization. The listed IP´s are relevant for

2For creating tenants and onboarding devices via the Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE device user interface. It will also need to resolve and access 'www.nt-ware.com', 'device02.c-cdsknn.net', 'a02.c-cdsknn.net', and ' device.c-cdsknn.net'.
3NT-ware OAuth Identification Service
4Provides technical resources, for instance, downloads of tools and software like the MEAP applets.
5IoT Hub is a managed service, hosted in the cloud, that acts as a central message hub for bi-directional communication between the uniFLOW SmartClient and the devices it manages. IOT Hub has a temporary "static" address, which is subject to change over time, so there is no IP address that can be documented here. Microsoft suggests following best practices, described in this article https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/iot-hub/iot-hub-understand-ip-address
6Due to some legacy device support the download for MEAP applets takes place via HTTP at present.
7The Data Collection Agent (DCA) will enable the device discovery and capture device information. It will discover new devices, take meter readings, and monitor all devices' device status, independent of their brand or model.
8NT-ware recommends whitelisting services and web addresses by DNS and not the IP address as this is susceptible to change.
