in the planning guide for CWMS i still find that mobile access is not possible without IRP, which is ok.
However I have a customer, that would like to use IOS/Android apps, while being in the Campus LAN, so the CWMS (internal-only) is reachable.
I reviewed the documentation another time and also found this passage:
When using a cellular data network, mobile users join the meeting through the Internet to the Internet Reverse Proxy. When using a local Wi-Fi connection, mobile users join the meeting using one of the following methods:
Internet Reverse Proxy (non-split-horizon network topology)
Directly through the internal virtual machines (split-horizon network topology)
The last sentence sounds like mobile user can join directly through the internal virtual machine...
I feel the term "mobile" is used in two ways in Documentation, one time meaning a user that is "not on local LAN" and one time for Users with mobile phones (Android/IOS Apps), right?
Can you please clarify:
1) Is an IRP still mandatory if we want to use IOS/Android Apps, while assuming the smartphones are all on the internal LAN/Wi-Fi? (It is clear it won't work from internet/4G/etc...)
2) If 1 is "yes", is it then possible/supported to deploy IRP in the internal LAN without opening 80/443 inbound through firewalls, to use it as a fully internal system? (I assume yes)
3) Basically to me one sentence in documentation is irritating either the one from above:
- When using a local Wi-Fi connection, mobile users join the meeting [...] Directly through the internal virtual machines (split-horizon network topology)
or this one:
- [About Split Horizon] This configuration can only support mobile access from a public IP (internet) network. Mobile access is not supported on an internal (intranet) network.
