Hi all! I have a user with a new Blackberry Storm who gets the error: " The application has attempted to open a connection to a location inside the firewall and outside the firewall."


I have done some research and it seems the fix is to set ALLOW_SPLIT_PIPE_CONNECTIONS on the BES. However I'm not sure how to do this? Do I create a new IT Policy items, and if so does anyone know the settings? I'm not sure whether to use boolean, integer etc and if there's a value I need to assign. I can't find any documentation other than the recommendation to "enable this" in the BES.


Thanks so much!

Which version of the BES are you using? This rule is under the Security Policy Group. (For 4.1.x)
