Re: Connecting to BES service

Resurrecting this rather than raising my own Thread, as my question is probably an extension of this.

 

Can someone point me at some documentation that describes the implications of using a BES connection from the Work Perimeter.  I'm interested in things like encryption and compression, and what I need to do to establish this connection.

Re: Connecting to BES service

If your app is installed on the Work Perimeter then all networking is routed through the Work network. There is nothing needed to configure in the app unless using cURL, in which case you need to set the proxy info for your connection.

 

Any encryption or compression would also be handled transparently, but I'm not familiar with what BES 10 offers myself. Let me know if you need more details and I will see about finding you a resource.

Re: Connecting to BES service

There is a BES 10 policy "Work Network Usage for Personal Applications", can an application detect if it is using the work network?

That setting is specifically for apps in the personal perimeter, app in the work perimeter will always use the work network.

 

For personal perimeter apps there is no supported way to determine the connection is happening over a work perimeter, the networking is transparent to the application at the QNetwork level.
