New Sametime Proxy APNs test application

I have written a couple of posts on this because I find the application extremely helpful in diagnosing network related issues with connection to APNs (Apple Push Notification service) so that iOS devices can receive IMs when the application is “backgrounded.”

Here is the application which includes a text file providing you with the correct syntax to us which would go something like this, for Windows.

Update – 07/09/2017

Below is a link for another application which was sent to me when troubleshooting Sametime 9. Quite old but it may still work, in fact I used it a few months ago on a Connections server to test connectivity.
