Configure network access for Android and iOS devices in Mobile Admin

If you use Mobile Admin with Windows Mobile, Nokia and/or iPhone/iPod Touch devices, you can connect to the Mobile Admin server from your wireless devices with or without a virtual private network (VPN). You can also choose to encrypt all Mobile Admin Data by connecting with HyperText Transport Protocol - Secured (HTTPS) if you do not have a VPN.

Connect with a VPN or HTTPS

It is strongly recommended that you connect to Mobile Admin Server from your wireless device through a VPN or with HTTPS. A VPN provides encryption and authentication options for your Mobile Admin connection and network data.

To use Mobile Admin with HTTPS, open port 4055 in your firewall to allow the connection between the Mobile Admin Server and the Mobile Admin Client installed on your wireless device.

For more information about configuring the default HTTPS connection, see Server options.

Connect without a VPN or HTTPS

It is not recommended that you use Mobile Admin without a VPN or HTTPS. In these conditions, your network data will not be encrypted.

To use Mobile Admin without a VPN or HTTPS, you must open port 4054 in your firewall to allow the connection between the Mobile Admin Server and the Mobile Admin Client installed on your wireless device.
