    RM Safetynet and profile manager

    Does anyone use RM Safety Net as the filter when deploying ipads using profile manager as I am having real difficulties now.

    The Mac Mini that I am using worked fine at home when deploying the test iPad but as soon as i bring it back into school profile manager won't push any new settings to the iPad.

    Any ideas???

    Is this not all internal, so shouldn't be hitting the SafetyNet? Is there something that makes you think it's the SafetyNet in particular?

    Just been thinking. Anything else on the network blocking these ports?

    All of those port are open.

    Thats what i was thinking but as soon as i put the proxy settings into the iPad and on the mac mini it never seems to want to push anything. Thats why I tested it at home to see if it was the mac mini server set up problem or filtering problem.

    Is there a setting somewhere to bypass proxy for local addresses? Could you give the server an external IP and see if it can communicate using that?

    RM Safetynet and profile manager

    Looking online on Apple Communities, it appears as though you need them ports open on the firewall externally. Is that the case too? I suspected it was all internal but it looks as though it uses an external service too.

    Another thought, are all the URL's that the server is trying to use allowed on the SafetyNet?

    If you don't have an external hostname for your Mac Mini and are using profile manager internally then you will need to create a PAC file for the iPads.

    This will then allow the iPads to see the Mac Mini on the internal network

    If you are allowing devices to be used out if school, might be worth making the profile server accessible externally.
