Default Using hosts for BES

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everybody.

I'd like to make the Blackberries in my company to act like a PC with modified hosts file. The aim is to write an url in the Blackberry, eg test.example.com, and forward it to a specific IP address, eg 111.222.333.444. In a normal Windows PC I would edit my hosts file and insert the row

Code:
111.222.333.444   test.example.com
I've tried to do so in our BES server (btw, it's BES 4.1 for Exchange 2003 running on Windows 2003 server) but the Blackberries don't act as I wish, even if the server itself does.

No proxy is used on MDS, and the normal Internet surfing is fine.

Could you please help me? If the hosts file is not the key, where can I set this parametre?

Cheers,
Cortez
