Options - Mobile Connect (macOS) disconnects immediately

BWCBWC Cybersecurity Overlord ✭✭✭


I'am having a hard time with a new deployment of a SMA 500v. A Mobile Connect (5.0.7) on macOS 10.15.7 immediately disconnects after logging into the SMA. No problems with the same Credentials when logging in with NetExtender, so I guess SMA configuration is fine. SMA log does not show any complaints.

On the other hand, no Problems logging into a deployment from the same Mobile Connect client.

Is this already known and reported?

    I tricked myself somehow. For the new deployment I forged a DNS enctry via /etc/hosts, which was working fine for creating the Connection inside of Mobile Connect. It was connecting to the SMA but then suddenly stops. Having the correct DNS record returned by the DNS resolver avoids this problem. Conclusion: No /etc/hosts for the Mobile Connect.

    Just in case someone else is falling into this trap.
