Top 3 Options for Running Performance Tests Behind Your Corporate Firewall
BlazeMeter has not 1, not 2 but 3 options for behind the firewall load tests.
1. You can whitelist our IP addresses
Whitelisting is a fast and easy option to implement.
What is whitelisting?
If you have to work behind a firewall then whitelisting a certain IP will tell the firewall to allow requests from that IP (or ip range) into the network as “safe”.
Generally, items are blacklisted for security purposes and the firewall is configured to block everything. You can contact your security or network administrator to better understand your company policy regarding whitelisting internet IPs
BlazeMeter IP addresses are available on-demand for the load engines.
