How to use the MDS Simulator for intranet accesss with authentication?

Hey there,

I'm developing an app that needs access to an intranet web page so for testing the app I need the MDS Simulator. The MDS web server is starting successfully, but as soon as I want to open an intranet page it says I am not authorized and therefore the access is being denied.

On a real device it would usually prompt you for a username and password once. The pc I'm testing on has the right to access these pages so it must be a simulator issue.

 

How can the simulator authorize for these intranet pages? Any help would be soo appreciated!! Testing on a real device is just too unefficient so it's really important for me to get this working.

 

I am using:

Simulator version 4.2.0.46

Java 1.7.0_07

BB JRE 7.1.0

Re: How to use the MDS Simulator for intranet accesss with authentication?

I was also guessing that the simulator tries to go around the mds server so I found this document:

Is it possible that this might be the reason for the authentication problem? If so, where exactly do I have to append "/app-param=MdsIP=127.0.0.1"?
