Using Version 81.0.381.0 (Official build) dev (64-bit)

 

When I setup sync on my work Network, the sync just stays on "Setting up Sync". However, when I go off company WI-FI and onto cellular, the sync works fine and the status changes to "Sync is on". Its more than likely a problem with the company firewall. The IT admin always asks which port/url they need to open. What needs to be opened for Edge Sync to work properly?  I tried to watch traffic off my machine, but couldn't make a determination of what URL sync is trying to access.

Hi,
try opening in the firewall
https://activity.windows.com/v1/feeds/me/syncEntities/

that's the server URL shown in the edge://sync-internals/

Thanks. That was extremely helpful. Everything works great now.

Awesome, you're welcome :)
