Default Is my internet traffic going through BES or BIS

Please Login to Remove!

From my work client if I surf to one of those tracert sites, I see all sorts of server IPs inside my workplace.

If I do the samething from my Blackberry, I only see unknown IP address ending with my Carriers IP address.

Is it safe to say that we are not using BES?

By and large, are most shops not using BES to drive traffic through?

Depends on the browser you're using. The Blackberry Browser connects via BES/MDS. The Internet Browser does not. Sounds like you're using the latter.

True, but could not get a difinitive answer in that thread.

Any thoughts?

First off Am I correct in saying that BES - is the internal Server and BIS is the external Blackberry or carrier service?

And that If I surf from the BB to a tracert site that list all the IPs I travelled through and don't see internal IP addresses that they are likely not routing Internet traffic through the Internal BES servers?

And is it correct to say that the vast of BES shops don't by default route BB Internet traffic through their internal BES servers?

Thanks.

And frankly, I doubt that you will get a definitive answer in this thread for one simple reason: you don't appear to be willing to ask the people who can give you a conclusive answer -- your BES admin. Your reluctance to ask them that simple question when you have been repeatedly told that they alone can answer it is fascinating.

If you can change your browser to BlackBerry Internet Service then likely it is going through BIS. If your worried then consider all traffic logged and don't use your BlackBerry for things your employer would not want you to go to.

True and Thanks. I can't ask the BES admin and am *kindly* looking for help here. I just want to make sure web access to my personal data is not being compromised is all.

under Service book i see Blackberry Internet Browsing Service is checked and has a GatewayIP with blackberry.net in the path.

All the host routing tables point to Cingular.

likely through BIS right and very unlikely web access is being logged internally right?

Thanks again.
