| | Blackberry app connection problem
Please Login to Remove!
I have a problem with an app that my company is trying to develop to work on blackberries on a BES server.
The app sends data to a server using an external internet address. The external address actually goes to a server inside our LAN network. What seems to be happening, is the blackberry is connecting to the internet through our internal BES server (I didn't know they did that!) and so the BES server is trying to access our internal server using its external internet address.
Because our router doesn't support NAT loopback, its not able to connect and so does not send the data through. (the data is sent using a specific port, and I've set up a port forward on the router to make the connection go through to the correct server.)
Is there any way to get the blackberry app to connect directly to the internet without going through our BES server so that this will work?
