MDM - Error While Registering GCM

These ports enable communication between the mobile device and the GCM. Also, you have to configure the firewall to enable connectivity to all IP addresses present in the IP Blocks listed in Google's ASN of 15169. For more information on Google's ASN of 15169, refer
