Default Configure BES to allow HTTP (intranet access)

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,
Do we have any documents for BES/MDS configurations that will allow http access to intranet.
Presently, I have a WML sample application hosted on the intranet.(url is http://information/BB/test.wml )
I need to configure the BES/MDS to allow access on the BB. How can this be achieved.

Thank you
AL

Dev, thanks. I went thro them,
I already have a WML application in place, I used the MDS simulator and the Device simulator to check these. they run fine.

Now i want to configure the BES to allow this to happen. I dont know what needs to be done there.

You have the correct URL in first few posts (if the server name is information), but make it a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN). You will want to have it in this form:

http://servername.domain.com/directo...name.extension

The domain name being the intranet domain. For instance, if you worked at Microsoft and you were putting a file named test.wml into a directory called BB on a server named information (using your examples), the FQDN URL would be:

http://information.corp.microsoft.com/BB/test.wml (with corp.microsoft.com being their intranet domain). Its best to assume that your company, in some form or fashion, uses DNS to setup an internal routing domain, so use the DNS name of the machine and the DNS zone name it belongs to.

Use the same URL as you would on your work PC's Web Browser to access the Intranet.
Depending on your set-up, you may see a prompt for a password.
If so, use your LAN access username/password.
If you are also prompted for a Domain, enter the same Context/Domain Name(case sensitive) that you log on to when using the PC.
While using v3.6 I had to include the domain name as part of the user name.
eg [Domain Name]\[username] "G88-01\Rancor" <--totally made up

With MDS you can run a web/data server from any machine on the same network and access that too.
On my network I have found that to access the server on my machine,
I have to use the machine name as part of the URL as IP address did not work.
eg. http://x00006767/MySite
Other networks may require the IP address instead of the machine name.
