Smart devices using iOS 5.0+ can be enrolled in Avalanche. Before iOS devices can connect to Avalanche, you must complete the following requirements:

You must supply Avalanche with an Apple Push Notification Service (APNS) certificate. For more information, see Obtaining an APNS Certificate for iOS.

You must secure the connection between smart devices and the smart device server. For more information, see Obtaining SSL Certificates.

You must create at least one enrollment rule. For more information, see Creating Enrollment Rules for Smart Devices.

For a list of ports that iOS devices use to communicate to the smart device server, see Port Information.

To connect an iOS device to the Avalanche server

1.From the device, use a browser to navigate to:

https://[Smart device server address]/mdm/

For the server address, use the smart device server's hostname or IP address. Unless the IP address is publicly available, it can only be accessed by devices connected to your local area network.

2.Provide the Enrollment ID and Password.

3.Click Enroll.
The device is placed in the folder associated with the enrollment rule it used and can be viewed from the inventory tab.
