EPi Find from a highly restricted network



I am currently in a highly restricted network. When I ran the EPi Find Indexing job on my local machine, I got the following errors 

EPiServer.Find.ServiceException: The underlying connection was closed: The connection was closed unexpectedly. ---> System.Net.WebException: The underlying connection was closed: The connection was closed unexpectedly.
   at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetResponse()
   at EPiServer.Find.Connection.JsonRequest.GetResponse()

Could someone suggest me what firewall rule change do I have to request IT department to add in order to make it working?

Should just be outbound HTTPS that is needed.

Hi Johan

Thanks for your reply. Can you be more specific as I am quite new to EPiFind. I registered a developer account from EPiFind and created a service, but it doesn't allow SSL.

You can just change to https:// in the config element. I think this is true for developer indexes as well.

Ye, https is enabled for all accounts.
