School Network - Failed to connect

Profile icon

I'm only using Python and HTML/CSS/JS. Are there any firewall settings, ports, IP addresses that I need to whitelist?

I'm trying to use repl.it with pupils on a school network. Whenever I open a repl it shows the message "Failed to connect, retrying". The message will be shown for 20~30 seconds before a connection is made but it can be longer.

Failed to connect

Sometimes it never connects. This doesn't happen at home so it appears to be an issue with the school's network.

Is it possible to get a technical response? I tried emailing but I was directed to the community.

An excellent teaching resource appears to be hampered by my school network. Waiting 20~30 seconds isn't much but even with only a few pupils it starts eating into the available time.

Your school's network may have a software designed to scan and block restricted sites (or it may just be slow)
