Default Blackberry DUN < For Access From BB, Not a laptop

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there!

New to the forum, spent the last 30 mins or so searching about for a answer to this query. Basically the 8800 seems like a top notch device.

As an IT admin for my present company, a lot of work is easily achievable these days remotely via VNC. Now I know there is software by Idokorro (Mobile Desktop) which allows you to basically connect into a VNC server on your blackberry.

The scenario below would be the best solution available. We have a modem connection at our main server which will accept a connection directly into the VNC server.

I.E our DSL connection dies, I am able to dialin to the server, fire up a VNC client (on my pc usually) and power cycle the router/server etc to get it back online.

Seeing as the blackberry itself has the capability of running such VNC clients, and has the ability to make a DUN via bluetooth for your laptop say, is there anywhere in the funtionality on the device itself to get it to dialin to my server and then load the Idokorro software to connect into the VNC server?

Apologies if all this sounds confusing. Whilst the software available on the BB will be perfect for when I have an internet connection(At HQ), when the internet connection goes down, I'm looking for a way to dialin and VNC on that way instead.

Basically alleviating the need to have my laptop with me 24/7.

Any response will be greatly appreciated!

To my knowledge the BlackBerry device does not support on device DUN from 3rd party apps, it's a cool idea, but you still need a seperate laptop in order to use the DUN.
