Network Requirements

Please consult your IT department before installing Valarea Rooms as certain blocks may need to be lifted. We also recommend using a wired LAN connection

Network Security

Generally, Mago Room has the same network requirements as any PC running video conferencing applications like Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Cisco Webex, Google Meet. Specific to Mago Room, the categories listed as "required" for the video conferencing systems must be open on your firewall. Mago Room also needs access to Windows Update and Microsoft Intune (if you use Microsoft Intune to manage your devices). For the full list of IPs and URLs required for Mago Room, see:

Windows 10 OS patches best practice suggestions:

We highly recommend that you configure the Mago Room PC to automatically keep up to date with the latest Windows updates, including security updates. Set an operating system update policy to install all pending updates every day starting at 2:00 am using a pre-set local policy.

Mago Room devices do not need to connect to an internal LAN. Consider placing the Mago Room in a secure network segment with direct Internet access. If your internal LAN is compromised, the vector's opportunities to attack the Mago Room will be reduced.

We strongly recommend that you connect your Mago Room devices to a wired network. The use of wireless networks on Mago Room devices isn't recommended. Some connectivity features, such as Wi-Fi Sense, are disabled by default.

Bluetooth Proximity for Personal Calendar, Cloud Drives, MagoLink

The Proximity Join feature for the personal calendar / personal cloud storages (e.g. OneDrive) is based on Bluetooth. The use of Bluetooth technology on Mago Room devices is currently limited to advertising beacons and required proximal connections. The ADV_NONCONN_INT protocol data unit (PDU) type is used in the advertising beacon. This type of PDU is for non-connectable devices that advertise information about the listening device. There is no pairing of Bluetooth devices as part of these features. Further details on Bluetooth protocols are available on the Bluetooth SIG website.
