Windows Autopilot networking requirements

Windows Autopilot depends on a variety of internet-based services. Access to these services must be provided for Autopilot to function properly. In the simplest case, enabling proper functionality can be achieved by ensuring the following conditions:

  • Ensure Domain Name Services (DNS) name resolution for internet DNS names.
  • Allow access to all hosts via port 80 (HTTP), 443 (HTTPS), and 123 (UDP/NTP).


Additional configuration may be required to grant access to required services in environments that:

  • Have more restrictive internet access.
  • Require authentication before internet access can be obtained.


Note: Smart card and certificate based authentication isn't supported during OOBE. For more information, see Smartcards and certificate-based authentication.
