App Tunnel

Prior to configuring the SDK, install VMware Tunnel, or integrate an existing third party equivalent with AirWatch. Please see Choosing an App Tunnel for more information on meeting this requirement.


iOS 8 supports VMware Browser only till v5.10.2. To take advantage of new features and versions, devices need to update to iOS 9 or later.

Choosing an App Tunnel

AirWatch supports a number of application tunneling (app tunneling) solutions that allow individual applications to authenticate and securely communicate with internal back-end resources. By enabling an app tunnel for a specific set of business applications, you can be certain that unauthorized or malicious apps do not have access to your network.

Supported Technologies

AirWatch supports the following technologies for app tunneling using the Settings and Policies configuration:

App Tunnel Description
Standard Proxy Enables devices to rely on an existing HTTP or SSL Proxy to determine which content the VMware Browser or other browser can access.
VMware Tunnel

Accesses corporate content from within your network such as an intranet site. With the VMware Tunnel enabled, you can access internal corporate content on your device.

For information on configuring the VMware Tunnel, please see the VMware Tunnel Admin and Install guides, available on AirWatch Resources.

F5 Proxy

Use to access your internal network as an alternative to the VMware Tunnel.
