BlazeMeter has not 1, not 2 but 3 options for behind the firewall load tests.
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.
See the list of BlazeMeter CIDRs
If your network security policy does not allow a vast range to IPs to be whitelisted, then you can buy dedicated IP's and set your server to use them.
This option is best in small numbers because you’ll need an IP for every server (console+ engine).
