Question TCP Access - How can I tell what I'm using?

Please Login to Remove!

My device (AT&T 7290) is attached to a BED with MDS enabled, but I don't want to use MDS as it is through my work's BES and I really don't want them to see every bit of data that comes from and to my device. I have my provider's information set in Options/TCP (APN set to "proxy" with no username or password) to point to my wireless provider's proxy server. How can I tell for sure that that's where my TCP access is coming from?

Default

it depends on the application. If the application allows you to select between TCP & MDS, then if you select TCP it will definitely not be through BES> However, alot of companies turn TCP off for stupid internal security policies. Most apps that auto select, will probably select MDS (BES) first.

There might be a utility that shows you this on running apps. Anyone know if there is one ?

Default TCP Access

If you don't want to use MDS then you should goto Options - > TCP and the default APN for AWS is proxy..

After entering the APN of "proxy" you shouldn't have a problem;
