Cannot install meteor. What hosts need adding to outbound firewall config?

I try ‘npm install -g meteor’, but see a timeout after the ‘>node cli.js install’ line of output. The progress bar stays at 0% and eventually fails with ETIMEDOUT.

Error: read ETIMEDOUT

The company I work for has a particularly fas— errr, I mean strict outbound firewall for the datacentre in question. They’ve added entries for the general npm distribution, but I’m guessing the meteor install script also calls out elsewhere. The errors and debug log do not mention what URLs are being attempted.

Can I get a list of hostnames/IPs to add to the company firewall?

Hi, if you add these two hostnames to your whitelist you should be ok:
