Connecting device to local web server

Hi,

 

I tried to find similar topics, sorry if this has been addressed before.

 

I have my BES (10.177.1.38) sitting on the same LAN as my proxy (10.177.1.250) and my webserver (10.177.1.27). I want my device, while connecting through 3G, to access the local webserver.

 

I tried configuring BES to use my proxy following these steps, but nothing seems to happen:

  1. In the BlackBerry Administration Service, in the Servers and components menu, expand BlackBerry Solution topology> BlackBerry Domain > Component view .
  2. Expand the MDS Connection Service component.
  3. On the Proxy mappings tab, click the URL string 
  4. Edit it and specify a proxy server.

Do I need to open different ports on my router ? Anything I misunderstood ?

 

Thanks in advance,

BES 5.0.3

Re: Connecting device to local web server

Hi knottyrope,

Sadly I don't even reach that point yet. I followed the given steps (I'm using proxy.pac), but nothing has changed before/after.

 

I'm using BES 5.0.3 on Windows 2008 server, the proxy is a Squid on a slackware. Nothing in the log.

Re: Connecting device to local web server

Yes it can.
I can also access the website when I am connected through WiFi from our office.
However when I try on 3G I get a DNS error message from a squid proxy called DMTCBBNS02, which I guess belongs to Blackberry and which cannot resolve our internal name.
