Prepare Network Infrastructure


Preparing your network infrastructure is one of the most important parts of a successful MDM migration. This step involves making sure that your networks are set up properly so that your migration can actually take place. MDM solutions usually require a valid internet connection to be able to communicate with the devices, so this must be done before starting the migration process.

To ensure that this part is done accurately so that the new MDM solution works properly, it’s also important to check out the configured proxy ports and server wildcards that should be allowed:

Service name
External port (begin)
External port (end)
Description
Web service (http)
80
80
For accessing Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP)
Web service (https)
443
443
For a fallback on Wi-Fi only, when devices can't reach APNs on port 5223
Push
2195
2196
For sending notifications and having feedback of APNs
APNs
5223
5223
For communicating with Apple Push Notification Services (APNs)
Internal
3190
3190
For controlling access to the Internet through Mosyle Business Web Filter

Important note: it’s also required to allow the MDM Server wildcard: *.mosyle.com

If you’re scaling the Apple device program while making the switch to your new MDM solution, make sure to be aware of the coverage and capacity of your network.
