If you have
purchased XenMobile Enterprise Edition and are using Device Manager with App
Controller to provide apps to your Worx Home users, you will need to configure
the Device Manager server so it can communicate with the App Controller server.
Conversely, you also need to configure the App Controller server so it can
communicate with the Device Manager server.
communication between the Device Manager and App Controller server, both
servers should as a best practice use public trusted certificates. When App
Controller initiates communication with Device Manager, it must validate the
server certificate from Device Manager, and when Device Manager initiates
communication with App Controller, it needs to validate the server certificate
from App Controller. This handshake will fail if the issuer of the certificate
is not trusted on both systems.
If you select
Secure Communication in the App Controller web console interface,
Device Manager communicates with App Controller on a secure port (for example:
443). This secure communication requires public certificates on both servers,
and requires that the ports are open in both directions.
between Device Manager and App Controller are RESTful API calls (which can be
fully inspected by any inspector between App Controller and Device Manager) if
the traffic is over port 80. The typical communication is App Controller
communicating to Device Manager that userX needs AppY because they subscribed
to it on Worx Home, or Device Manager calls App Controller to determine if App
Controller exists and the user is registered on it, in order to determine if
the connecting device is in MDM-Only mode or MDM+MAM (enterprise) mode.

Note: If you want
device users to be able to access and install virtual desktops from Citrix
XenDesktop or published apps from Citrix XenApp, they must have Citrix Receiver
installed on their devices.
