In our internal network, we have the BES server (working fine, and zyncs with MS Exchange) also we have some Smartphone Blackberry Storm 9530.  When we connect to our intranet via the Storm, we can see our PDF forms to fill out information and the buttons to print and email, but they don't work from the BBStorm.  These PDF Forms reside on our intranet, and they are simple PDF forms which normally works fine from our computers.  My question is:  Is there any special way to publish these PDF forms so they can be used from the BB Storm?,   also ... How do I setup our BB Storms to print on our Intranet shared printers?

Thanks!

Unfortunately the Storm won't know how to contact your shared printers, and as a result will be unable to print directly from the device.

What you could do is have the fields of the PDF displayed on an intranet web form, and when the user clicks submit the text is taken and inserted into a PDF, and printed. In theory it's possible, although I'm not a developer and I wouldn't know how to implement this, sorry!
