Default Prevent Blackberry browser to access intranet

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I'm wondering if there is a way to prevent the Blackberry browser accessing the intranet Websites ?

I think of firewalling the BES server, but is there something else that can be done ?

Thanks,
David.

Whate version of BES do you have? And what mail environment (Exchange, Domino, Groupwise)?

You can disable MDS.

I use BES 4.1 SP4 MR3 (Lotus Domino)

Disabling MDS option:
At the moment, blackberry users are connecting the internet using the Blackberry browser. I've seen that even for internet access, the connection go through MDS. If I disable MDS, will these users be redirected directly using the carrier?

ITPolicy option:
I haven't find the correct option to do achieve this.
Security Policy Group / Allow Internal Connections set to False: It looks like it applies to third party apps but not the Blackberry browser.

use a proxy server or configure access control in the mds properties and create a rule to block internal sites.
