Configure a connection to the standalone EAS proxy server

To configure the connection between Sophos Mobile and the standalone EAS proxy, you upload the certificate of the EAS proxy server to Sophos Mobile. The certificate was generated when you configured the EAS proxy instance.

For information on the installation and configuration of the standalone EAS proxy, see Standalone EAS proxy.

Warning If the EAS proxy service is started before you have uploaded the certificate, Sophos Mobile rejects the connection to the server and the service fails to start.

To upload the certificate of the standalone EAS proxy:

  1. On the menu sidebar, under SETTINGS, click Setup > Sophos setup, and then click the EAS proxy tab.
  2. Optional Under General, select Restrict to Sophos Secure Email to restrict email access to the Sophos Secure Email app, available for Android and iOS.
  3. Under External, click Upload a file and navigate to the certificate file.
    If you have set up more than one EAS proxy instance, repeat this for all instances.
  4. Click Save.
  5. In Windows, open the Services dialog and restart the EASProxy service.
