Limitations for Ivanti Tunnel for Android native

The following are limitations of Ivanti Tunnel for Android native:

  • Front-end load balancer to Standalone Sentry is expected to work but has not been tested.
  • Performance depends on the apps using Standalone Sentry. As a best practice, monitor Standalone Sentry usage and add more Standalone Sentry servers a
  • Server authentication through Standalone Sentry with Kerberos is not supported.
  • Standalone Sentry supports only limited types of UDP traffic,such as DNS traffic. Audio and video traffic through Standalone Sentry is not supported. Therefore, Ivanti recommends configuring SplitUDPPortList to manage UDP traffic.
