Device not being created in FNO On prem 2018 R1

Symptoms

Whilst creating a device in FNO on premise 2018 R1 it has been observed that an error is produced whilst selecting an account. In the flexnet.log the error is:
2018-10-01 05:23:56,955 [default task-6] ERROR (interceptors) [ADMN] SecurityInterceptor: Failed to execute Action:

Cause

This issue is caused by restricting FNO so that it cannot connect to the internet. This may be due to a proxy or a firewall.

Resolution

To resolve the issue you would need to allow the following URL's in the firewall or proxy :

*.flexera.com,
*.flexnetoperations.com,
struts.apache.org,

jakarta.apache.org,

tiles.apache.org,
*.hibernate.org,
hibernate.sourceforge.net,
*.jboss.org,
*.springframework.org,
*.root-servers.net,
schemas.xmlsoap.org,
w3.org,
xml.apache.org,
xmlns.jcp.org,
*.flexerasoftware.com and most importantly
localhost

Can you provide more clarity on why some of those hosts are required?  For example, hibernate.sourceforge.net redirects to hibernate.org when accessed via a web browser, and their web page suggests they use Github, not SourceForge?
