Configure Content Gateway settings in the AirWatch Console to establish a node and pre-configure the settings that get bundled into the configuration file, eliminating the need to configure the settings manually post-installation on the server. Configuration includes selecting the platform, configuration model, associated ports, and if necessary, uploading an SSL certificate.

Procedure:

  1. Navigate to Groups & Settings > All Settings > Content > Content Gateway in the Organization Group of your choice.

  2. Set Enable the Content Gateway to Enabled.

    You might need to select Override to unlock Content Gateway settings.

  3. Click Add.
  4. Complete the fields that appear to configure a Content Gateway instance.

    *This field does not display when configuring Windows Content Gateway. Windows uses IIS and does not require a Public SSL certificate.

    Ignore SSL Errors (not recommended) If using a self-signed certificate, consider enabling this feature. If enabled, Content Gateway ignores certificate trust errors and certificate name mismatches.
    SSL Offloading Enable or disable SSL Offloading.
