Fm Server SSL certificate

Hi all,


1. I have a few database files hosted in my FileMaker Server.

I have not installed a custom SSL certificate for FM Server yet.Hence when I access this hosted database files from FM Go, I had to turn the FM Server machine's Firewall Off and I my admin console has a http:// connection as opposed to a secure https:// connection. This obviously is not ideal.

The database files that are hosted in FM Server would be accessed over 3G, 4G and Wifi in FM Go in iPhone, iPad and iPad Mini Devices.

I am not sure of how important or mandatory it is to get a FM Server custom SSL certificate installed.

Any suggestions please?


2. It is also required to generate individual App Icons for each of these database files, rather than going to FM Go to access the database files.

I understand the iPhone configuration utility with FileMaker AppMaker is not available any more. I understand I need to use Apple Configurator 2 in Mac machines to do that. But couldn't find any proper documentation to do that. Can anyone please recommend a decent documentation on this topic.


Thanks and Regards,
