Prerequisites: Installing the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node

  • Verify that the computer is running
    Windows PowerShell
    2.0 or later. This is required for the setup application to install RRAS for
    BlackBerry Secure Connect Plus
    and the
    BlackBerry Gatekeeping Service
    If the setup application cannot install RRAS on the computer, you must stop the installation, install RRAS manually, and restart the installation.
  • Choose a directory account with read permissions for each configured directory connection that the
    BlackBerry Cloud Connector
    can use to access the company directories.
  • Use a
    BlackBerry UEM Cloud
    account with permissions to download the
    BlackBerry Connectivity Node
    installation and activation files (for example, Security Administrator).
  • Use a
    account with permissions to install and configure software on the computer that will host the
    BlackBerry Connectivity Node
  • Verify that the following outbound ports are open in your organization's firewall so that the
    BlackBerry Connectivity Node
    components (and any associated proxy servers) can communicate with the
    BlackBerry Infrastructure
    region>, for example or
    • 443 (HTTPS) to activate the
      BlackBerry Connectivity Node
    • 3101 (TCP) for all other outbound connections
