Nav 2015 web client issues

i all,
I have Nav2015 with webclient. My webclient works with https. The certificate is issued by our certification authority and webclient on windows works perfectly, so it supposed that self-signed certificate isnt necessary.
On Windows (in or out domain) in IE or Chrome with http or https web client works.
On Macbook works webclient in CHrome OK, but on safari server verifies the user and show main role center. When I click on any button on rolecenter, webclient does nothing or show error:"Communication with the server failed, and the content cannot be displayed. Refresh the page or open a new browser window"
Ipad (safari or chrome) works same like safari on Macbook (http,https)
DynamicsNav tablet app( android or iOS) shows error after entering server address (Failed to connect to the server)(My main problem for my client)

I just missing something somewhere, maybe some fresh eyes will spot it :-)

    The type of client credential used for authentication.
    Possible values:
    Windows - Windows authentication is used, and client will connect with "current user"
    this user is expected to be the same and known to both server and client
    This is the default mode and is typically used on a LAN with Active Directory
    In this mode X.509 certificates are not used and options set below are ignored
    UserName - Windows authentication on the server. Client is expected to present username/password
    indentifying a windows user known (created) on the server.
    Typically the client will ask for these credentials and pass them to the server
    Certificates are used to protect the passing of credentials.
    This is typically used when only the server is part of an Active Directory, or
    when the client is not trusted, e.g. connection over a WAN/Internet
    NavUserPassword - Authentication is managed by the server but not based on windows users.
    Client is expected to present username/password matching a user known to the server.
    Typically the client will ask for these credentials and pass them to the server
    Certificates are used to protect the passing of credentials.
    This mode is used in hosted environments e.g. Azure where the list of allowed users
    are maintained by NAV and not based on windows users.
    AccessControlService - Authentication for the Web Client is handled by Windows Azure Access Control Service.
    An ACS namespace needs to be set up before. Also the Identity Providers need to be set up
    as well as the Relying Party representing the NAV Web Client.
    To support ACS, you need to specify the ACS WS Federated authentication endpoint in the ACSUri.
    <add key="ClientServicesCredentialType" value="Windows" />
    The listening TCP port for the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server. This is part of the server's URL. Valid range: 1-65535
    <add key="ClientServicesPort" value="8046" />
    Specifies whether the connection to the Dynamics NAV Server instance requires an SPN.
    If true, the connection will only be made to a service with an SPN <ServerInstance>/<Server>:<ClientServicesPort>
    If false, the connection will be attempted to a service with or without an SPN.-->
    <add key="ServicePrincipalNameRequired" value="false" />
    Specifies the amount of time that a connection between the Dynamics NAV Web client and the Dynamics NAV Server can remain idle before the session is stopped.
    Time span format: [dd.]hh:mm:ss[.ff]
    dd: days
    hh: hours
    mm: minutes
    ss: seconds
    ff: fractions of a second
    <add key="SessionTimeout" value="00:20:00" />
    Specifies whether the Report Viewer options for saving a report as an Excel, Word, or PDF are visible.
    Enabling this parameter might require changing security settings on the server.
    For more information, see the documentation for configuring the Report Viewer.
    <add key="ShowReportViewerExportOptions" value="false" />
    Specifies whether to show the search action for finding a page or report.
    The action appears in the ribbon and navigation pane of the web client.
    <add key="ShowPageSearch" value="true" />
    Specifies the connection to the server.
    <add key="UnknownSpnHint" value="(net.tcp://xxxxxxxxxxxxx/Service)=NoSpn" />
    The DNS or subject name from the server certificate.
    <add key="DnsIdentity" value="" />
    Specifies the sign-in page that Microsoft Dynamics NAV redirects to when configured for Single Sign-On.
    For Azure AD (Office 365) authentication, the ACSUri setting has the following format:
    https://login.windows.net/<AAD TENANT ID>/wsfed?wa=wsignin1.0%26wtrealm=<APP ID URI>
    "<AAD TENANT ID>" is the ID of the Azure AD tenant, for example "CRONUSInternationLtd.onmicrosoft.com". Use "common" if the application is configured as a multitenant Azure AD application.
    "<APP ID URI>" is the ID that was assigned to the Microsoft Dynamics NAV application when it was registered in Azure AD, for example "https://localhost/".
    For ACS authentication, the ACSUri setting is a top level partition of ACS that is used to create the ACS tokens, for example "cronusinternationalltd.accesscontrol.windows.net/.../wsfederation"
    - Notice the difference between ACS "wsfederation" and Azure AD "wsfed" resource
    - The query string parameter needs to be URI-encoded (use "%26" instead of "&").
    <add key="ACSUri" value="" />
    Name of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Help Server to connect
    to. The value of the "Server" setting is used as the default.
    <add key="HelpServer" value="DOMAINDIRSYNC" />
    The listening TCP port for the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Help Server.
    Valid range: 1-65535
    <add key="HelpServerPort" value="49000" />
