Failed to Update - Firewall and Web Filtering


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,


I have been trialing Driver Booster 2 and I am getting an Updating Drivers failed.

This will be something to do with our corporate (Sophos UTM) firewall and web filtering.

If I allow the IP address of the computer I have installed Driver Booster to bypass our filtering, all works fine.


My question is, does anyone know the sites, ports, applications, etc, which would need to be allowed / unblocked for Driver Booster to work, without the need to allow the IP address through / bypass our firewall and web filtering.

Hi hilla

Welcome to the forum.


It is very unwise of you to try to circumvent your company's Firewall rules, as this could jepordise your employment. Additionally, it is also unwise to update drivers in a corporate environment without your IT departments input/permission, as an incorrectly updated driver could cause serious issues.

I am the Network Administrator, I was wondering if there are any other sites Drive Booster goes too?

We actively block various sites for our students.

With our Firewall product, I also have some rules which will block an limit based on Apps (content).

If I temporarily place the IP address of the computer I wish to use Driver Booster on, in a pass through list there are no problems.

I was wondering what sites, ports, etc, I may need to look at or unblock/allow, etc?
