Question BES 4.1 - Pull Access Rules

Please Login to Remove!


I have to configure access control rules to allow Internet access, through a proxy server, but I've also to disallow access to our internal servers, for security reasons.

So I'm trying to write the needed rules but I noticed that BES 4.1, unlike the 4.0 version, doesn't allow the usage of regular expression.

In fact, every special char it is converted to its plain text format. For example "\w" is converted to "\\w" or "^" to "\^".

In my opinion, the convertion has done by the BlackBerry Manager GUI because regular expressions defined on the previous version were correctly imported during the upgrade.

Can you help me to understand how can write complex rules, taking into account also that rules are evaluated independently by their position (deny seems to wins over all, even if there's a more specific allow rule)?

Should I try to write the rules writing them on the Manager and then modifying the respective fields directly on SQL DB? I tryed this solution on a test environment but, although it seems to work fine, it doesn't seems to me the right way....
