Default Blackberry as MODEM - Ipmodem setting in BES

Please Login to Remove!

I'm running BES v4.0. Where is the setting to enable/disable the use of handsets as modems? I've seen it mentioned in a few guides and posts on here but cant seem to locate it on the software.

Cheers

Set the Disable IP Modem policy rule to TRUE to disable using the BlackBerry as an IP modem.

I'm no genius, but as far as I know any modem functionality is not enabled/disabled through BES. I've set up two devices as modems; 1) A 7130e that tethered without any additional software, but needed a plan from the carrier and 2) A 7520 using a 3rd party app called Shark Modem. With neither of these did I need to do anything in the BES.

The 7130 solution worked much better, but neither was fantastic. I'm curious, what requires you to set up a device as a modem?

Doug,

Where would I go about finding this? Is it some kind of built-in policy or something that would need to be added? Wasn't aware of this one...

Thanks & Ciao

This is an option that can only be set via IT Policy on the BES server. The default value is to allow IP modem. If your not connected to a BES server then this is not an issue your you.
