We are setting up a WIFI network for students to use with their Kindles. We want to block everything but those sites needed for the kindle to operate. We have setup this network and configured our firewall to allow * We are still having trouble though with registering new kindles and downloading archived items. Does anyone know what additional URLs or IP addresses we need to allow for the Kindles to work?

I'm sure its a boat load of addresses. I would contact Amazon or traffic sniff your AP and see where they are trying to connect.

Not sure what type of filtering you are doing, but you may need to write the exception as ** to add the wildcard to the end as well. If that does not work, your going to have to take jjmartineziii's advice and contact Amazon.

I was missing the * on the end of our filter. Seems to have cleared up now.
