Is there anyway to filter internet content on the Blackberry? I don't think we're using the BES. Is there any third party apps or any other options?

No, not unless your using BES. Then you can use your corporate proxy to filter the content.

Remember, please try searching first!

Need a screenshot? ... Like JavaLoader?
Try using BBscreen .....Use JL_Cmder!
or BBScreenShooter!

...or MDS Push/Pull restrictions (but it would make sense to use a corporate firewall, proxy, content filter, or whatever else one may have)

Does anyone have a step-by-step guide for configuring BES to run through WebSense?
I know there are lots of posts on this, but tying the info together is laborious. I am happy to do this if needs be, but if someone knows of a nice easy guide, I would very much appreciate it.

Good afternoon

I see there have been previous posts on filtering xxx8211; specifically with Websense, and hope it is okay to reply to this post - for two reasons (1) I need to know how to configure for Websense and (2) a previous post particularly relates to my problem but is closed and a later post is the opposite problem (i.e. no filtering wanted, but we do!) I think this is may be a Proxy and/or Websense issue rather than BES issue but either way if anyone can help, I would really appreciate it.

We have BES installed on a Windows Server 2003R2 SP2 server. We want our Websense policies to work when users browse the web using their Blackberries xxx8211; filter certain categories of sites.

Websense do not support BES or Blackberries, but suggested the fix below in an earlier post. I tried this at the time and it worked fine when I applied it, and websites were filtered. It worked for a while, but for some reason I can't see, filtering stopped working at the weekend.

Edit the wsMSP.ini file on the ISA server in the system32 folder.


Once saved, restart the Web Proxy service on the ISAxxx8230;

Our IT Policy has the option Enable WAP Config set to 'False' which I believe forces the users to browse through to use the BES browser.

Thank you and apologies for the length of this post.
