Default How to access webpage in LAN?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi NG.

I'm wondering. If your BES and Webserver are in the same LAN, you are able to access the webserver by it's local hostname with your BB device.

Is this a bug or a feature? Or is it just logical?

Greetings,
Peter

Is it a bug that you are able to access internal websites on your desktop? Hell no! It is a feature!

The BB is like your desktop; only difference being it is mobile, and more secure than regular desktops.
