So our users are connect to our BES server and it users our corporate internet to browse and therefore our corporate policy applies to block certain things.

This is a good thing.    However i want to allow when they are on wifi because I dont care about the bandwidth then... in fact I would prefer they did not use the corporate internet when they are on wifi.     It does not make sense to do this

Hi,

Do you have your BES configured to use a corporate Web Proxy for checking content and disallowing inappropriate sites etc?

no our corporate internet firewall does the filtering.

Hi,

Surely the point of routing everything via your corporate Firewall is to ensure that corporate devices are not being used to browse to inappropriate or offensive content?

Are you subject to any laws or similar legislation which imposes this upon your organisation due to the nature of the business it is in?

Hi,

I suggest you try the Internet or HotSpot browser instead - I believe you can manually select this within the Browser unless the options have been disabled by Policy.

The hotspot browser is set to allow in the policy... however I do not have an icon for this.    How is it accessed?

Hi,

Within the Browser, go to options and you can select from the following:

BlackBerry Browser
Browser
HotSpot Browser

The alternative is to permit a separate Icon for the browser within IT Policy:

Browser Policy Group > Allow IBS Browser
Browser Policy Group > MDS Browser Use Separate Icon

Regards,

I checked these policies and they are correct but i still have only one icon and can not choose any other browser within the browser.   Could there be another policy overriding this?

hot spot browser is not accessible but still uses the corporate internet access and filtering.

I did finally figure this out and your advice on the hot spot browser was correct
