This error may be caused by an issue with our cloud services, which will be indicated at the top of the page. You can check the Bluebeam® Cloud Services Status Page for more detailed information.


An error message appears saying “Could not connect to Bluebeam Studio” whenever you try to create an account, log in, or upload files to Bluebeam Studio.

Why is this Happening?

This is usually because the firewall ports used for Bluebeam Studio connections are currently blocked as part of your IT department’s network security policies.


Contact your IT department to confirm that the ports listed below are unblocked for the indicated hosts:

  • *
  • *
  • *
Revu is proxy aware and will automatically use your proxy if its configuration is recognized as valid. Click the “Force proxy use” check box in the Revu Studio Preferences to force Revu to use the proxy.
If it’s necessary to input an IP address to open up the above ports (as opposed to the hostname, which we recommend), you may perform a nameserver lookup or ping the above hosts for their current IP addresses. Please contact your IT department for information about how to do this.
