WebSocket Support for Mobile Access Technical Level


To use WebSockets support:

Create a regular Web application to the web server.

  • Make sure to include the port used for the WebSocket connection in the Authorized Locations of the Web application.

  • The Web applications related to the WebSocket application must use Path Translation as their Link Translation method. It can be inherited from the gateway setting or configured in the Web application. Note that, depending on the application's properties, Hostname-Translation (HT) may work as well (and sometimes even recommended).

  • Some browsers may require that the Security Gateway's certificate be at least signed with SHA-2 hash algorithm and the CA/ICA cert to be imported to the iPhone/Android as trusted certificate. To change the default SHA algorithm used by the ICA see sk103840.

To monitor WebSocket connections:

  1. On the Security Gateway, enter expert mode.

  2. Run: PingerAdmin report type ws
    Or, to see all connections handled currently by the Pinger daemon (such as ActiveSync push), run: PingerAdmin report all
