Default Transparent proxy?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I'm running a speed test (a little perl script I wrote and hosted on my FiOS FreeBSD box), and I'm wondering if there is a transparent proxy in use on blackberry units?

The reason I ask, is I'm getting a result of "298 KB/s", which is odd since my FiOS upstream is only capable of pushing 220-230 KB/s The data being xfer'd is randomly generated and binary, so it's not compression happening and not cache.

If there is a proxy, is there a way to disable it or work around it?

Thanks!

Correct. All data goes through RIM's servers where stuff gets stripped / compressed / etc.

and no you can't go around it
