Don't really see it. I had to create special settings. Is that supposed to be on that page somewhere?

Make sure you set the proxy in the right place. Create a new location document (by copy/paste/rename of an existing one) Then edited the Proxy Configuration setting on the first page. Set the "HTTP Tunnel" field to localhost/3128 as well as all the proxy fields. You should then see Lotus Notes replication requests on the Shark Modem connection tab.

If you have problems with DNS name resolution (locating your mail server), you may need to set up a connection document in your address book to map the server name to a IP Address.

I also recommend that (with the blackberry shark location selected) you uncheck all except the most essential databases (your mail) so that you don't attempt to replicate other databases over the blackberry. Also, if you get sent a lot of large e-mails, you should change the replication settings for your mail database to only receive the first 40KB or similar. Replication settings are specific to the current location, so when you switch back to your normal location, they will revert to normal settings.

These are good instructions. Which tab is the HTTP tunnel on as I don't see it but mine works fine otherwise. I figured this out a while back and have used it replicate mail. I do an initial replication with the size limit and then if I have time go back and get the larger docs I need.

If you edit your location settings, the first tab is marked "Basics" On this page is a setting for "Proxy Configuration". If you click on the button next to this you will find a dialog into which you enter the proxy settings. This is where you will find HTTP Tunnel settings.

Note, this is for Lotus Notes 7. I have not tried Notes 8 yet.
