Supported network providers

To support mobile access service connections from SafeLinx Clients or messaging services, you must install support for the network types that your clients use. The SafeLinx Server supports a range of IP and non-IP networks.

When you install the SafeLinx Server, you specify the network types that you want to support. If you do not install support for a network when you first set up the SafeLinx Server, you can add support later. To create a connection to a configured network provider, you add a mobile network connection (MNC).
Note: If you are supporting HTTP access services only, you do not have to specify a provider network.
You can enable support for the following network types on the SafeLinx Server:
