Citrix Endpoint Management

Tunnel device policy

Application tunnels (app tunnels) are designed to increase service continuity and data transfer reliability for your mobile apps. App tunnels define proxy parameters between the client component of any mobile device app and the app server component. You can configure the Tunnel policy for Android devices.

Any app traffic sent through a tunnel that you define in this policy goes through Citrix Endpoint Management before being redirected to the server running the app.

To add or configure this policy, go to Configure > Device Policies. For more information, see Device policies.
