I'm working on a desktop database app for a client where the data has been moved to SQL Azure SQL database.


They have some users who will be working from home, all of whom are Spark customers.


SQL Azure SQL database require firewall rules to explicitly allow IP addresses that can access the database.


Spark provides limited means of contact, and when I tried online support chat, I was told that they could not provide me with a list of IP address ranges they use.


I don't particularly want to have to be contacted to add each user's IP address and with dynamic IP addresses these could change.


Does anyone know of how to get hold of a list of Spark IP address ranges as used by domestic internet, IE ADSL,VDSL,fibre ?

have you considered instead of opening up the hole to whole ranges, Requiring a vpn connection?

Most if not all of their domestic broadband IP's originate within AS 4771. 


But as above, depending on your requirements consider something more secure

All our residential BB customers (xDSL and Fibre) will be in AS4771. We do have ranges broken down further by access type and locality but we're not prepared to share those because of issues keeping those lists up to date. Changes are made and ranges move from time to time and we're not prepared to externally expose that level of detail.


 [edit - the list quoted above is a reasonable list to use - I'm talking about the access type and location breakdown we won't expose]
