* The GCM (Google Cloud Messaging)  service is deprecated and was removed as of April 11, 2019. It was replaced by FCM (Firebase Cloud Messaging). MDM v7 replaced the GCM service with the FCM service by this date, at which point you only need to allow communication for the FCM service.

The pre-defined ports 2222, 2223 can be changed if necessary.
