Configure your network

Outlines how to set up your network to handle POS payments.


Before you begin processing payments, configure your network so that the PED and POS can communicate with each other and the outside world.

  1. Connect your PED and POS to a local to should allow communication with the Adyen payments platform.
  2. Configure your firewall to allow outgoing HTTPS traffic (TCP/443) from the IP addresses of the PEDs and POSs to the following domains:
    *.adyen.com
    *.adyenpayments.com
    Adyen does not provide IP ranges as they are subject to change at any moment
  3. Make the following ports accessible to the local network:

    Port
    443
    Port
    8443

Wi-Fi with multiple access points

For mobile terminals that are used in a location where multiple Wi-Fi Access Points are installed and the terminal is supposed to be dynamically serviced by these multiple access points, Adyen recommends the following:

Configure the access points with the SSID of your network.

  1. Access the admin menu by pressing Enter + 9.
  2. Select Network config.
    1. Select Wi-Fi:
      1. To ensure quick handoff between the various Wi-Fi Access Points, enable roaming on the terminals. Tap roaming and select Yes.
      2. Tap band and select the required bandwidth.
        In case the terminal support multiple bands (Example, Verifone VX690 supports 2,4GHz and 5GHz bands), select a fixed band for it.
        Adyen recommends selecting one of the available Wi-Fi bands to prevent switching between bands.
  3. Test that the terminal performs a correct handoff when switching between access points, switch to the Wi-Fi tab on the terminal and walk around with the terminal.

  4. Check the signal strength, and the mac as listed on the screen. The signal strengths vary depending on the distance to the nearest access point and the mac identifies the access point and indicates, when changed, when a switch occurs.

  5. Some apps available on tablets show signal strengths of Wi-Fi access points in the vicinity. These apps might be useful as well to verify Wi-Fi coverage in the area where the terminals are used.
