Default Blackberry OS hosts file

Please Login to Remove!

Is there an equivalent to the TCP/IP hosts file on the Blackberry OS? Where can I find it?

Thanks

The closet thing is at Options > Advanced > TCP.

Are you looking for an equivalent of an LMHOSTS file?

Hi, many thanks for the replies.

What I've trying to do is re-direct certain groups of users to different sites, all by the same dns name but actually resolved differently. e.g. users all go to my.site.com but it is resolved differently for beta testers, developers, QA etc... A local hosts file is more or less what I'm trying to replicate and was hoping it could be done on the Blackberry OS. I would think they would have a similar concept if not the same idea.

Thanks

My Blackberry (8330) has a section under advanced options called Host Routing Table. Can someone explain what this is used for..

Thanks very much

The host routing table registers your unit to your specific provider's network. In most cases this is never used more than in the initial setup, but sometimes, re-registering the device can help some issues for service books, email and browser issues.
