Configuration Manager Proxy Exceptions

This post provides a summary of the URLs required for Configuration Manager current branch to provide resources that require Internet access. Because Configuration Manager relies on other components, it can be difficult to find a single source of URLs required. Software Updates rely on Windows Server Updates Services (WSUS) and the Service Connection Point uses Intune and other online services.

The features of Configuration Manager that require Internet access are:

  • Asset Intelligence Synchronisation Point;
  • Configuration Manger Console (pending investigation);
  • Cloud Distribution Points (pending investigation, initial URLs added);
  • Software Update Point (SUP);
  • Windows Store for Business;
  • Intune Subscription;
  • Service Connection Point.
