 +====== What connections do I need to allow through a firewall for Zotero to work properly? ======
 +If Zotero is being used, it should be given the same access that browsers on the system have or much of its functionality will be broken.
 +Zotero connects to various zotero.org subdomains for syncing, translator/​style updating, retraction notifications,​ error reporting, version updates, and more. All Zotero domains are behind AWS load balancers, so resolved IP addresses are transient and cannot be used for allowlisting.
 +Beyond zotero.org domains, various core functionality depends on internet access that is unrestricted beyond standard content blocking: file saving (from any site a user saves from), Add Item by Identifier, PDF retrieval, PDF metadata retrieval, metadata updating, etc. Because of these required connections,​ it's not possible to limit Zotero'​s internet access to specific domains.
 +If you're having trouble allowing Zotero to connect through a firewall or proxy, see [[Connection Error]].
