Unlike other IBM Worklight servers, the push server requires outbound connection to Apple and Google servers using ports defined by these companies.

When running a cluster of application servers, only one node will actually send push messages to Apple and Google servers. This server is selected randomly.

The push notifications tab in the IBM Worklight Console provides a view of the various entities in the push notification chain.
