Using Anaconda Distribution with AE4#
Configuring firewall settings#
If platform users will use Navigator online, you may need to whitelist the necessary sites in your network’s firewall settings so that Navigator can reach these sites:
https://conda.anaconda.org for conda-forge and other channels on anaconda.org
https://vscode-update.azurewebsites.net/ for updating Visual Studio Code
google-public-dns-a.google.com (126.96.36.199:53) to check internet connectivity with Google Public DNS
If platform users will use Navigator offline, conda environment creation will be limited to the packages available in their package cache. Using Navigator in offline mode is equivalent to using the
update conda commands with the
--offline flag so that conda does not connect to the internet.
If your users will use Navigator offline, you may want to change the Navigator icons that link to the web.
NOTE: If Navigator detects that internet access is not available, it automatically enables offline mode. Users can also select Anaconda Navigator > Preferences and check the
Enable offline mode option to work in offline mode any time, even when internet access is available.
If platform users will use conda to install packages, they can configure conda to search a specific set of channels for packages.
As an Administrator, you can also configure conda at the system level, which will override any user-level configuration.
