Firewall/proxy/cache server settings:

If a proxy server is used, HTTP 1.1 must be enabled on the proxy server, and the client browser be configured to use HTTP 1.1 through the proxy connection. Other network devices must also support version 1.1 of HTTP.

Your network administrator will need to ensure clients' hosts can access domains listed above. Flash uses standard Web packets.

In some proxy configurations, URL caching should be disabled or bypassed for the "" domain. This configuration change is not required unless problems occur when using cached URLs.


To receive LearnCenter emails, all users must add the following email addresses to their safe sender list:

IT Team Action:

Add the following IP addresses. If your network has firewall or other access rules, you may need to revise the rules to whitelist the IP addresses associated with the LearnCenter’s Oracle hardware platform, which are listed below. 

NOTE: Please do not disable IP addresses you currently have for the LearnCenter; you should augment that list with the new addresses.

The LearnCenter system does not support Enterprise Mode in Internet Explorer.
