Agent settings: Mobile Connectivity

Tools > Configuration > Agent settings > Mobility > Mobile Connectivity

The Mobile Connectivity dialog box allows you to configure certificates and Wi-Fi settings for Android, iOS, and Windows devices. After a device connects for the first time, it applies these settings.

The General page allows you to provide a name for the settings and set it as the default setting.

Not all options are supported on all device types. If you disable options after the settings have been distributed to devices, the settings are removed from devices.

Certificate page

Certificates are currently supported on iOS devices. To remove a certificate from a device after it has been distributed, you can either remove the certificate from this page and sync the device, disable certificate settings and sync the device, or perform a device wipe.

This page contains the following options:

Enable certificate settings: Allows you to distribute certificates to mobile devices.

Remove: Remove a certificate from the agent settings.

Add Certificate: Add or validate a PKCS12 certificate. Browse to the certificate file in the file system and provide the password for the file.

Wi-Fi page

This page contains the following options:

Enable Wi-Fi settings: Allows you to distribute Wi-Fi settings to mobile devices.

Add: Add a Wi-Fi network and its authentication information.

Setting name: A name to identify the settings.

Authentication tab

SSID: The service set identifier for the Wi-Fi network.

Auto join: The device automatically joins the network when it is available.

Hidden network: Allows the device to find the network when it is not open or broadcasting.

Authentication type: The authentication type that the network supports.

Password: The password used to join the network.

Protocols: The authentication protocol or protocols that the network supports. If you enable TTLS, be sure to choose the Inner Identity type from the drop-down menu. If you enable EAP-FAST and Use PAC, you must either enable Provision PAC or else distribute the PAC through another method. To use SCEP, you must use the TLS protocol.

Authentication: Credentials to access the network. If the device must provide an identity certificate, you must configure the certificate on the Certificate page before you can select it from the Identity Certificate drop-down menu.

Trust: When the network establishes a connection with a secure tunnel, the device may need to know the identity of the authentication server. Provide the certificates presented by the RADIUS servers. Certificates appear in the Trusted Certificates box after they have been added on the Certificate page. If you're using SCEP, enable the Use SCEP option. You can only enable this security setting when TLS is selected as a protocol.

Proxy tab

Proxy type: Determines whether the proxy information is set manually or automatically. When you use automatic, provide the proxy server URL.

Proxy server URL: The URL for the proxy server.

Proxy server and port: The URL and port number for the proxy server.

Authentication user: Username to authenticate to the proxy server. This field is only used for iOS devices using manual proxy.

Password: Password to authenticate to the proxy server. This field is only used for iOS devices using manual proxy. If you do not provide a password, the end user must supply the password to access the proxy.

Proxy Bypass (Android only): Addresses or domains for traffic that should bypass the proxy server. For example, you may want to bypass the proxy server when communicating with the Active Directory server.

IMPORTANT: Not all devices support all proxy settings. If you are using manual proxy, you may need to create separate settings for Android and iOS devices, since the systems do not handle proxies in the same way.
