Users can sign in and start a lab, but can't do anything else

If your computer has a corporate firewall, you might be prevented from starting up resources/VMs

 

If your computer is subject to a corporate firewall, your corporate security might prevent you from starting up resources/VMs. In this situation, you can typically sign in to Qwiklabs, start the lab, and log in to the Console, but you cannot continue. 

To run labs in Qwiklabs from within a corporate firewall, you need access to the ports listed below. Contact your IT or Tech Support department. 

Required access to:

  • Ports 80 and 443 for Qwiklabs and the Google Cloud Console
  • Port 22 for SSH (used by Cloud Shell)
  • Port 3389 for RDP (to sign in to Windows VMs)
  • Port 3306 for MySQL (to sign in to the database)
