Firewall issues for plugins using API keys

    I am using the Akismet and Stats plugins on my blog but my hosting provider blocks outbound access by default. They request the IP addresses and ports to be enabled.

    I found that Akismet accesses <API key>.rest.akismet.com, apparently on port 80.

    I am uncertain which port or domain or IP address Stats uses.

    Any assistance would be sincerely appreciated,
    Paul

    Sorry, but you’re in the wrong place. You need to ask at: http://wordpress.org/support

    Mea culpa. I just remembered Stats is supported here. I do use that plug in on my self-hosted blog but I don’t know about the port. Perhaps someone who does know will be along soon.
