Connecting Using a Public IP
Your system was most likely issued with a public IPv4 address when it was provisioned. Kato Spaces systems make use of a firewall allow list to manage access via the public IP. The firewall is managed by the Kato Spaces support team.
By default, all inbound traffic is blocked by the firewall. The firewall allows us to create rules that allow access restricted by IP address, port, or by a range or ports or services. For example, any of these would be valid rules that we could create in the firewall:
- Grant access to all traffic originating from a specific IP address
- Grant access to traffic originating from any IP address that is targeting port 80
- Grant access to traffic originating from any IP address that is targeting any port in the range 16750-16800
You can create any number of firewall rules for your public IP - you are not restricted to a limited number of open ports or allowed IP addresses.
If you need to make changes to your firewall allow list, please reach out to our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
