Default Blackberry router failover - virtualisation?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All

We have a single Blackberry router on the DMZ. A concern that I am faced with is if it fails over, I will need to bring another one line as you cannot cluster them according to Blackberry docs. So I was thinking:

1. Is anyone running Blackberry router, on the DMZ in a virtual environment?
2. Anyone in a DR situation brought or even does it normally, run the Blackberry router on the internal network, with port 3101 setup bi directionally?

Otherwise I suppose its a case of building a new piece of kit, setup same way as existing router, and have it turned off.

Thoughts?

A lot of people run the router component in their internal network with a proxy connection to the internet.

You don't need port 3101 bi-directional. You only need to allow outbound connection on port 3101.
