Allow only certain URL's on BPS

Hi,

 

I've been searching to find how to allow only a handful of URLs that the blackberrys can contact and there only seems to be instructions on setting up for BES and not BPS.  Is this even possible with Professional Server?

 

Cheers

Re: Allow only certain URL's on BPS

Have you tried following the BES instructions?  What instructions did you find?

Re: Allow only certain URL's on BPS

Not sure which one's you mean, but found the following none of which seems to apply to BPS as these menu's aren't present

 

Task 1

Create Pull Roles.

  1. In the left pane, select BlackBerry Domain.
  2. On the Global tab, click Edit Properties.
  3. Select MDS Access Control.
  4. Double-click Pull Roles, then click New.
  5. In the Name field, type the new role name.
  6. In the Description field, type the role description.
  7. Click OK.

Re: Allow only certain URL's on BPS

Check out the BPS Admin Guide and specifically start with page 55.

Re: Allow only certain URL's on BPS

Actually, one other question with this, say I wanted my users to access two specific websites only and had placed these in the allow list, how do I disallow everything else without setting a deny for every website in the world?

 

In other words how/where do I force the brower policy to only permit what is specified in the accept/deny list?

Re: Allow only certain URL's on BPS

You create an allow rule that has the two addresses that you want; that is all you should need to do.  Make sure if you want this enforced you use an IT Policy setting that forces use of the BlackBerry Browser and doesn't allow use of the Carrier Browser.
