Default Getting Http Error 503 when trying to call web service on the server which is under

Please Login to Remove!

Hello AndyDufresne and all,

We have our application ready for our client which is having there own BES. Our Application is calling java web sevice which are set up on web server(which is under BES). Also, we have provided OTA download facility to download the App from web server(which is under BES).

So, user(registered to BES) is able to download the the APP from web server via OTA. Downloading works OK.

But, when my Application is trying to call the web service from web server. It simply not able to access the server.

I am getting Error 503: Service Unavailable on device.

So, I search quite a lot on the forums about this error. And I think the reason might be BESAdmin needs to enable BlackBerry Mobile Data System (BlackBerry MDS) on BlackBerry Enterprise Server for the BB device.

But if this is the reason then user should not be able download the App from Browser, as it is connecting to same server.As other people are getting the same exception from browser. But in my case it is working OK from browser.

I am not able to figure out the exact reason here.
It has to do with access to our app on the enterprise server ?
Or some proxy setting on the device?

Can anyone please guide me here.

Thanks... Appreciate your response...
