Google Merchant Center IP Change
On March 11, Google is changing the IP address of its Google Merchant Center ftp uploads.
The osCommerce feed using the domain name uploads.google.com so the change of IP address will not affect osCommerce sites.
Here is their notice.
Thank you for using Google Merchant Center. This email is for active users of the Google Merchant Center FTP upload server (uploads.google.com). If you do not submit data feeds to Google Merchant Center via FTP (http://support.google.com/merchants/bin/answer.py?answer=160627), you may ignore this message.
On March 1, we’re upgrading the Google Merchant Center FTP system and updating the IP addresses for our upload server (ftp://uploads.google.com).
If your network firewall rules require you to permit connections to specific IP addresses, you’ll need to update your network settings as a result of this change. If you submit feeds to uploads.google.com without adjusting your firewall settings, you may disregard this notification.
If you submit your data feeds via FTP and you’re connecting from a network protected by a firewall, make sure the firewall rules allow you to connect to the following IP addresses:
New IP addresses for uploads.google.com:
Please note that these IP addresses should only be used to configure your firewall and not to establish direct connection to the server. To connect to the FTP server, please always use the hostname uploads.google.com, as none of the specific IP addresses are guaranteed to be available at a given time.
If necessary, please make sure to implement any changes to your firewall by March 11, to prevent any interruptions when we make this change.
If you have any questions, please contact us at http://support.google.com/merchants/bin/request.py?contact_type=contact_policy
Below, we’ve included the list of IP addresses that will be deprecated. You should keep these IP addresses in your firewall settings until we’ve completed this migration on March 31.
