In nearly every environment you need to configure a proxy server to connect to the internet. There are several documentations that are useful to read. But in the end you are whitelisting 10000000 URLs and IPs – which will of course be great since you will never face a network related issue, but most network teams will not do this whitelisting.

I used SQUID as proxy to really tear down which URLs are connected to during enrollment and to manage the device. This list is not complete but will show a small list of URLs that are really needed and without them you will not be able to manage Windows via Workspace ONE properly.

Required URLs

Microsoft:

  • *.wns.windows.com – WNS

VMware:

  • ds137.awmdm.com – Workspace ONE device server – IMPORTANT this URL is might be different in your environment!
  • awcm137.awmdm.com – Workspace ONE Cloud Massaging – IMPORTANT this URL is might be different in your environment!

Certificate revocation lists:

  • GoDaddy.com – is used for certification revocation
  • entrust.net – is used for certification revocation
  • digicert.com – is used for certification revocation

Optional:

  • slscr.update.microsoft.com – Windows Update
