Blackberry BES Users traffic routing out BES

We upgraded a couple of our users blackberries to version 6.0.  I do not want their internet traffic routing out our BES.  There doesnt seem a way to do this with this version.

Hi,

I believe the following will do the trick:

Under Device-Only Items set Enable WAP Config to False/No  (BES 4/5)

Under Global Items set Allow Browser to False/No  (BES 4/5)

Under Browser Policy Group set Allow IBS Browser to True/Yes  (BES 4/5)

Under Browser Policy Group set AllowHotspot Browser to True/Yes (BES 4/5)

Hello,

You can set a policy on BES to force the device to use the Wi-Fi connection for internet access, when one is available. Unfortuantely, you can't change the behavior on a 3G connection and the device will auto-select a connection based on the rules outlined in this docuement - http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=KB23699

Hi,

You can configured HTTP Pull rules and deny these to the users?

Configuring pull rules will not solve his issue. If you deny access, it will prevent the users from accessing the sites. It won't cause the device to try another path.

Hi,

You could create a separate IT Policy for the BlackBerry 6 users and configure that to disable BlackBerry Browser but allow BIS Borwser and WiFi Browser.

That way, internet access from the device will not be via the BES?

I'm not aware of any policy settings that will do that. Can you explain the steps to setup such a policy?

Hi,

Can you be more specific?

Does the BlackBerry browser still work - the allow Browser = No should disable the BlackBerry browser but still allow the internet browser and WiFi hotspot browser - i.e. they will still be able to browse but will be using Internet Browser - obviously the BIS service will need to be enabled/allowed on their SIM for this to work.
