Microsoft DynamicsAX Mobile Connector

We have Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 installed in our environment.  We are looking to setup the Dynamics AX Mobile Connector for external users to access Timesheet/Expenses.  We have set up our Azure account, AD FS v2.0 (Server 2008 R2).  I would like verification on where we should install/configure the AX Mobile Connector piece:  Are we installing on the Dynamics AOS server or on the AD FS server?
We have it installed on the AOS server, we can see the connectivity through AD FS, but unable to complete the connection.
How does Azure know how/where to connect to the mobile app piece.

hello
either to be honest, normally we install the AX Connector on its own box, this then makes it easy to secure or place in DMZ, server is only normally 1vCPU 2GB

Thank you for the information regarding the hotfixes!!  Applied the updates and also found we were still having issues connecting to DynamicsAX through the Mobile App, and realized we needed to create the associated worker accounts within Dynamics/HR Module
