    Currently we publish a list of discrete IPs for our Cloud nodes.

    These IPs are likely to change whenever we make major modifications in our Softlayer datacenters.

    If an IP changes, this means registrations failing for our Cloud customers, because their firewall does not know the new IP, and admin overhead for them to modify the rules on the FW.


    A simple solution would be to publish the whole IP ranges provided by Softlayer, instead of fluctuating discrete IPs:
