Hi Mark, many thanks for the FAQ, which I had followed religiously.
o I have a 7100v, with OS 184.108.40.206
o The APN is set to wapsfr, as per the details in the service book entry
o i've disabled the firewall
o TLS is set to Handheld, (whatever that means).
My BB browser works perfectly, and I can surf the web and wap sites without a problem, and retreive e-mail (NB I don't connect to a BES).
In the weather module of BBtoday all I get is Bad DNS address, or Malformed URL.
In the IPPP service book entry it had an APN of blackberry.net. I tried that, but it didn't help either.
Looking at the BBtoday code, I see that it uses the directive deviceside=true in the URL for non-BES use. However looking at configuration info in the BB developer documentation, and for various third party tools, it mentions one should specify WapGatewayIP and
WapGatewayAPN in the URL.
As far as I can understand, deviceside=true only works for certain networks. http://www.jasonlam604.com/tipshints...blackberry.php
Unless someone has a workaround, I guess I'll have to wait till the code is changed to allow the gateway and apn info to be added to the BBtoday preferences.
