Hey guys. I am working on a mobile application that talks to a webserver to store information in a data base. Most of this is relatively straightforward and I’ve got it all working on my shared hosting. However, I want my server to be able to send push notifications. For that to happen, I need to be able to open a socket connection to gateway.sandbox.push.apple.com and gateway.push.apple.com on port 2195. My current web host lets me open up ports on a ticket by ticket basis, but the process is really slow, things just aren’t working right, and I am powerless to debug my server as I do not have access to anything.
Does anyone do something similar here ? Would I be able to do all this with a server from Digitial Ocean?
