Installation requrirements

Network access

The machine(s) running as the application server will need the following network access:

  • http access to usn.ubuntu.com in order to download the USN database and detect security updates. Without this, the available updates won't be distinguished between security related and regular updates
  • http access to the public Ubuntu archives and changelogs.ubuntu.com, in order to update the hash-id-database files and detect new distribution releases. Without this, the release upgrade feature won't work
  • https access to landscape.canonical.com in order to query for available OPL releases. If this access is not given, the only drawback is that OPL won't display a note about the available releases in the account page.
