I have created a browser based application. One of the links on the app is a PDF file and a GIF. When I click on the GIF the image is displayed. When I click on the PDF I get the following error:
Socket Channel not able to connect; address 127.0.0.1:1900
When I run this in IE, it works great (PDF and GIF displayed beautifully). Whats more interesting is that when I run it with my REAL BlackBerry device (connected to BES) then it works great. Any idea how I can get this working on the simulator?
Before you ask, I have tried this on many different device and MDS simulators and they all give the same result.
Solved! Go to Solution.

This is not supported by the MDS Simulator. To test this in the BlackBerry Simulator you can connect it to a real BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

Thanks Mark. I tried following the instructions but it didnt work. The activation did not start straight away. So I manually went and created a user on the BES, set their activation password. Then repeated the steps in the link but no activation starts so I went to options, enterprise activation and then entered all the information (email, pwd) but now it says
Acquiring Service connection.....
And then it popus up with : Activation Request failed. A service connection is unavailable.
The Desktop Manager is showing as 'connected'. Any ideas?

Open Device Manager and have a look at the Statistics tab. Are you able to expand the BlackBerry PIN listed there and see device and server stats? If so, it is able to connect to your BlackBerry Enterprise Server and Enterprise Activation should start.
If not, please provide the BlackBerry handheld software for the BlackBerry Simulator (found under Options, About), the version of Desktop Manager and BlackBerry Enterprise Server (and the type of mail server it is connected to).
The Desktop Manager should be equal to or higher than the BlackBerry handheld software version.

Yes under Device manager I can open up the PIN and it even shows the server. Here's the weird bit. Under the BES name it shows that the state is Connecting and not Connected. Its got the name of the BES and then it says port 4101. Is that a port that should be opened up on the BES or on the machine that is running the simulator?
The Blackberry simulator is 184.108.40.206 (8320) , Desktop Manager is 4.5.015 and the BES is a 220.127.116.11 communicated with Exchange 2003.

I am also facing the same problem.
When I try to download word attachment from simulator, it shows "Unsupported media type:application/msword"
I followed all the steps give in the below link
But i am facing below issues.
If only the Time Connected statistic appears, without the Bypass statistics, the BlackBerry Device Simulator is not connected to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server over serial bypass and the enterprise activation process cannot occur. Delete the DMP files from the BlackBerry Device Simulator directory and complete the above steps in order to remove the net_rim_sdk_simulationSB.cod file from the BlackBerry Simulator directory. Alternatively, you can attempt this procedure with a BlackBerry device to verify that your BlackBerry Enterprise Server configuration supports serial bypass.
I tried deleting all the files mentioned above.But still i don't see Bypass in statistics section.
Any help in this regard highly appreciated.
