To enable devices and apps to communicate with XenMobile, you open specific ports in your firewalls. The following tables list the ports that must be open.
Open ports for NetScaler Gateway and XenMobile to manage apps
Open the following ports to allow user connections from Citrix Secure Hub, Citrix Receiver, and the NetScaler Gateway plug-in through NetScaler Gateway to the following components:
- Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops
- Citrix Gateway connector for Exchange ActiveSync
- Other internal network resources, such as intranet websites
To enable traffic to Launch Darkly from NetScaler, you can use the IP addresses noted in this Support Knowledge Center article.
For more information about NetScaler Gateway, see the NetScaler Gateway documentation. That documentation includes information about NetScaler IP (NSIP) virtual server IP (VIP) and subnet IP (SNIP) addresses.

Port requirement for autodiscovery service connectivity
This port configuration ensures that Android devices connecting from Secure Hub for Android can access the Citrix Autodiscovery Service (ADS) from within the internal network. The ability to access the ADS is important when downloading any security updates made available through the ADS.
ADS connections might not support your proxy server. In this scenario, allow the ADS connection to bypass the proxy server.
If you want to enable certificate pinning, do the following prerequisites:
- Collect XenMobile Server and NetScaler certificates. The certificates must be in PEM format and must be a public certificate and not the private key.
- Contact Citrix Support and place a request to enable certificate pinning. During this process, you are asked for your certificates.
Certificate pinning requires that devices connect to ADS before the device enrolls. This requirement ensures that the latest security information is available to Secure Hub for the environment in which the device is enrolling. For Secure Hub to enroll a device, the device must reach the ADS. Therefore, opening up ADS access within the internal network is critical to enabling devices to enroll.
To allow access to the ADS for Secure Hub for Android, open port 443 for the following FQDN and IP addresses:
|FQDN||IP address||Port||IP and port usage|
||184.108.40.206||443||Secure Hub - ADS Communication|
||220.127.116.11||443||Secure Hub - ADS Communication|
For Secure Hub versions before 10.6.15, the FQDN is
discovery.mdm.zenprise.com. Open port 443 for IP addresses 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124.
