Testing restricted URL from outside the company network remotely [SOLVED]

Hi everyone,
Help please,

I need to use testProject.io to test a website “etriageuat.co.nz” from my home remotely … But here’s the issue I’m having?

  • The website URL “etriageuat.co.nz” CAN ONLY be accessed within my company via the company network connection (wifi). If I connected my machine to any other network outside my company, the URL will not work and will show an error webpage!
  • Is there any way that I can do the testing using “Remote Agent” or VPN or Teamviewer or any available addon in TestProject.io to solve my issue of testing this URL from home ?

Thank you in advance
Cheers!

In my company, I just needed to ask them to whitelist my IP to continue testing. How does your company expect you to test it if you’re at home? (even without TestProject)

Hello,
The IP should be www available, not an internal LAN IP. If the IP is with 172… or 10… they will need to provide you a way to join their network, before being able to connect to the machine.

You could try to connect to the company network through VPN , if they have this service on. Cisco or openVPN could do the trick.

Other way is: to ask your company to keep a PC online in office, for you, and use a remote connection to it: teamviewer or other ( depends on firm policy, teamviewer is free for home usage ) And you’ll remote connect to that equipment and do all remotely.
Other way: Install testproject-agent on a work-office PC, and run all the testproject tests into that agent.

From what i see, that domain is a UAT version, so it’s most for sure blocked for random IP connections. If you don’t have a persistent IP , it will be a trick to keep updating firewalls IP allowance ( as Philip Wong says )
The normal aproach, is to ask your company to provide you a VPN way to join their network from home.

This is not a TestProject question, than a remote access to lan servers problem.

Hope my answer helps,
Kind regards,
Victor
