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. This is
because 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
'Allow Secure Communication' in the App Controller web console interface, then
Device Manager will communicate 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 XDM) if the traffic
was over port 80. The typical communication is App Controller telling Device
Manager that userX needs AppY because they subscribed to it on Worx Home, or
Device Manager calling App Controller to understand if App Controller exists
and the user is registered on it, in order to figure out if the connecting
device is in MDM-Only mode or MDM+MAM ('enterprise') mode
