Manage connection endpoints for HoloLens

Some HoloLens components, apps, and related services transfer data to Microsoft network endpoints. This article lists different endpoints and URLs that need to be allowed in your network configuration (e.g. proxy or firewall) for those components to be functional.

Near-offline setup

HoloLens supports a limited set of offline experiences for customers who have network environment restrictions. However, HoloLens needs network connection to go through initial device set up and the following URLs have to be enabled:

Purpose URL
IDPS https://sdx.microsoft.com/frx/idps
NCSI http://www.msftconnecttest.com/connecttest.txt
AADv9 https://login.microsoftonline.com/WebApp/CloudDomainJoin/9
AADv10 https://login.microsoftonline.com/WebApp/CloudDomainJoin/10
AAD Pin https://account.live.com/aadngc?uiflavor=win10&showSuccess=1
MSA https://login.live.com/ppsecure/inlineconnect.srf?id=80600
MSA Pin https://account.live.com/msangc?fl=enroll

Endpoint configuration

In addition to the list above, to take full advantage of HoloLens functionality, the following endpoints need to be enabled in your network configuration.

HoloLens limitations

After your HoloLens is set up, you can use it without a Wi-Fi connection, but apps that use Internet connections will have limited capabilities when you use HoloLens offline.
