Smile ICQ/IM/IRC with BES

Please Login to Remove!

I checked the FAQS, probably not enough though , so here goes, I'm on my company's BES, but I wanted to use outside TCP/IP apps, like java based gmail notifier and java irc for mobile, is it possible being on the BES?
Thanks in advance!

As has been stated before, it all depends on your company's IT policy settings. You won't know unless they tell you or you try.

I don't have a BES to deal with but I wanted to put in my .02c regarding IRC and Blackberry.

I've found that using Idokorro SSH to get out to one of my servers and running B--chX or epic through screen is lots better than any of the IRC clients out there for BB. There's way less lag, the session is secure, and since it's behind screen, if I get disconnected I don't miss anything other than the time it takes to reconnect and scroll back a little. It's a little hard on the eyes but the light and my already nerdy glasses make it okay.

I do what katieraine does, Idokorro SSH to one of my servers, except then I use irssi instead of Bitc*X as the IRC client. No more "afk" and worrying that my network might have split. IRC and Blackberry, that's so much fun and so cool, the wildest dreams of this nerd have come true

this may be a bit off topic, but what do you like about irssi? ive never used it, just installed it. I've always ran BX for the past few years. id like to get a users point of view instead of just the docs on it.

I like irssi because it isn't so *loud* looking

Plus, since you should all be running your network chats inside a screen(1) session, even if you're disconnected you just resume again.

Guys, IRC over a SSH session? That sounds rediculous =) The latency in typing over a GPRS session alone makes it a pretty tough go..

but i understand the geek value of running *****X in full color in your pocket =) I've done it.. but could not find it useful

Give JMIRC a try. It runs natively on Blackberries, has no latency issues and is real-time. IT's also open source and free.

http://jmirc.sourceforge.net/

The real beauty of JMIRC is it does not use a SSH session and I have JMIRC online all day and night long without any issues..

We like to run it in SSH sessions because that way we can always use the same session. It will never drop off, since we're all (i think) running it inside of screen(1).

When using the Idokorro in local input mode (local input), the latency is roughly the same (1-2 seconds for transmission), since jmIRC has to transmit chat over the same network. xxxxxX is reasonably fast enough in Idokorro and does works around many of the latency annoyances of other BlackBerry telnet/ssh clients.

What I am saying, is, *****X is most definitely usable and competitive, provided you use the local input feature of Idokorro.
