Windows Activation via Proxy/Firewall RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,

    My organisation has purchased a Windows 7 Volume license (non-KMS version). My proxy is blocking the activation process for my desktops. Does anyone know the IPs and ports required for activation to work?

    Sure, as if everybody is sysadmin and have access to the proxy configuration.

    What about make this god-freakin'-dam windows activation talk with authenticated proxies? Why so difficult? There's no rocket science in this.

    This problem persists in Windows 10.
