Allowing access to Renaissance Learning resources for your Renaissance Place software hosted by Renaissance Learning.
Your district or school network may have a firewall, proxy server, or content filtering software that could prevent access to resources that are used by your Renaissance Place software. To be sure the software functions as designed, add an exception within your firewall, proxy, or content filtering software to allow inbound and outbound http and https communication with the *.renlearn.com domain. This domain includes your hosted site, the Renaissance Place report servers, the chat feature, Home Connect, and the STAR Early Literacy and STAR Math content services. Also allow access to and from *.renlearnrp.com. This domain is used throughout the software, including the following: on the login page, for AR book cover images, for activities in AR 360 and Accelerated Math, the Accelerated Math glossary and worked examples, STAR testing, STAR Custom, in the "Did you know?" feature, the Renaissance Place License Agreement PDF, and the Resources and Manuals. Also allow access to and from *.renaissance.com. This domain is used for the online Help system and Renaissance-U. If you are not able to set this type of wildcard exception but you can enter a range of IP addresses, allow access to these ranges:
24.177.128.* (188.8.131.52 - 184.108.40.206)
