Hi, i would like to know how to block direct internet access in BBs, using BES EXP, letting them browse the internet only through our corporate proxy, using the "intranet navigation".

I have already set up a "proxy mapping", under BES_EXP_MDS-CS_1, but i don't know how to proceed...

please help. :-)

we solved as follows

we upgraded BESX to version (SP3)

we made an IT policy disabling IP modem, Disabling WAP configuration and Disabling Bluetooth Bridging.
This prevent playbooks to tether to devices, but allows it to browse internet through bb services when connected to BT, anyway.

Additionally we configure the IT policy to don't allow 3rd party apps external connections.

... we are done.

Thanks anyway, i'm closing this question

I should take care of it by myself, reading documentation and doing a lot of tries.
