Default Re: Internet/Intranet, proxy through MDS questions

MisterGriffiths thanks for the response, I'll explain how things were before adding the proxy settings to MDS, we're looking to follow similar to what we had before.

Internet users: Policy allowed them to use IBS browsing. These users could access our Intranet and use Rogers data plans to surf the internet.

No Internet users: Policy blocked IBS browsing. These users could only access Intranet sites.

The problem started when our "Internet" users couldn't access the internet while connected to our Wifi. This is because they were trying to get out through our network and was blocked by the firewall. We enabled the proxy settings in MDS to allow them to get out as this was the only choice we had. They require to use Wifi in certain areas of our company due to poor cellular reception.

Now once we enabled the proxy this has allowed them to access the internet at all times, however this has also allowed 'No Internet" blackberry users access to the internet. This is something we do not want. No internet users now have access to the internet if they are connected via wifi or not because MDS doesn't care how you connect. What we want is to control which Blackberries have access to the internet and all others don't.
