Port Details

Ports to be opened, if the mobile device, uses Wi-Fi to reach the Mobile Device Manager Plus Server.

  • 5223 - If the mobile device connects to the internet through the Wi-Fi, then this port should be opened. For better security, you can restrict these connections on the IP range If all the managed devices have access to cellular data network, this requirement is not needed (HTTPS port).
  • Port numbers 5228, 5229, 5230 (HTTPS port) should be open on the fire wall, if the mobile device connects to the internet through Wi-Fi. This enables communication between the mobile devices and the FCM. As FCM doesn't provide specific IPs, you should allow your firewall to accept outgoing connections to all IP addresses contained in the IP blocks listed in Google's ASN of 15169
