Then follow the instructions below:


  1. Type in one of our IP addresses at a time
    1. 54.236.233.46
    2. 54.236.233.28
    3. 54.174.91.34
    4. 54.174.153.212
    5. 54.174.115.171
  2. Click 'Add IP'

If that has been done on both whitelists your backups should run fine. If you have any issues, contact CodeGuard Support.
