BB Connect password timeout

I have installed Blackberry Connect v4.0.0.100 on a HTC TYTN2 (Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro), connected to BES.

 

I would like to increase the BBConnect timeout period for the device password, or disable it. 

 

Where in the registry on the phone is the value stored for the device password timeout and enable/disable?

The longest I can select is 60 minutes and I cannot disable the timeout at present.

 

Thanks

Re: BB Connect password timeout

-there is an IT policy on BES which forces a password on your device. You cannot change the timeout limit or disable it; only your BES admin can make these changes.

Re: BB Connect password timeout

The BES IT policy that is pushed down to a Windows Mobile phone in this case, must be stored somewhere in the registry or in a file that is accessed by a running process that locks the keyboard based on some configuration settings.

 

Can anyone explain the policy push process in detail, and/or clarify where the password timeout settings are stored?

 

Thanks
