You run the Add MDM Gateway Wizard from Mobile Device Manager (MDM) Console. This wizard configures MDM Gateway Server with an address pool for connecting Windows Mobile devices, Domain Name System (DNS) and Windows Internet Naming Service (WINS) server settings, and an internal URL for remote MDM Gateway Server management.

To add a computer that is running MDM Gateway Server

  1. On MDM Device Management Server, or any server that has MDM Console installed, choose Start, choose All Programs, choose Microsoft System Center Mobile Device Manager, and then choose Mobile Device Manager Console.

  2. Expand Mobile Device Manager, and then select Gateway Management. In the Actionspane, select Add MDM Gateway Wizard.

  3. On the Introductionpage, type a name for MDM Gateway Server. Choose Next.

  4. On the Access Pointspage, type the external Internet-facing address that Windows Mobile devices will connect to for communication. In the Namebox, type the DNS entry for remote MDM Gateway Server management, and then in the Portbox, type the port value that you want to use. This site will be an internal management site. Choose Next.

    It is important to supply the correct IP addresses and DNS entries on this screen for both external IPsec communication and the management interface. The access point port should be the same port that you specified during MDM Gateway Server Setup. For remote management, this should be the same name as specified in the certificate. You must be able to access this DNS entry from MDM Device Management Server. For a list of MDM Shell cmdlets to use with MDM Gateway Server, see MDM Shellin MDM Operations at this Microsoft Web site: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=112415 .
  5. On the Gateway Address Poolpage, choose Add.

  6. On the Network Subnetpage, type the IP Addressnetwork and Subnet Maskso that mobile clients can receive IP addresses. This will serve as an address pool for clients. Choose OKand then choose Next. For the MDM Gateway Server address pool, all CIDR format subnet mask lengths greater than or equal to /16 are supported. For example, “/26.”

    Source-based routing enables MDM Gateway Server to redirect managed device IPsec traffic to a different default gateway other than itself. To enable this feature, in Routing Configuration, select the Redirect traffic from mobile devices through this gatewayoption, and then type the IP Address for the default gateway. If you enter an invalid or unresolvable IP address the MDM Gateway Server will not be able to accept its configuration from the MDM Device Management Server. An error message will be displayed in MDM console for MDM Gateway Server. Errors will also be generated in both the MDM Gateway Server and MDM Device Management Server event viewer logs. For more information about the benefits of source-based routing, see the MDM Planning Guide.
  7. On the Gateway DNS/WINSpage, type the name of a primary and secondary DNS or WINS server. At least one DNS server is required. Choose Next.

  8. On the Add Gatewaypage, choose Add. Choose Finishto close the wizard. To verify that Mobile Device Manager (MDM) Gateway Central Management can communicate with MDM Gateway Server, open MDM Console. Expand Mobile Device Managerand then select Gateway Management. In the details pane, the sync state value for MDM Gateway Server should read Up to date.
