BES 4.1.6 and OCS client



I understand that BES 4.1.6 supports the OCS 2007 client on handhelds.


Does anyone know how I can actually install the OCS client though? And is there anything I need to configure on the BES side for this to work?

Re: BES 4.1.6 and OCS client


Thanks....it doesn't show me what I need to do on the server side though (if anything) and also how I can roll this out to Blackberry clients?


I assume I can roll this out via a Software Configuration, but can this be applied to certain users/groups only - not everyone may want an OCS client on their handheld, and it would be better to test this first too!


Thanks again.

Re: BES 4.1.6 and OCS client

Have you set up the BES already? when you first set it up, you should get a screen that says are you planning on using a messanging enviroment.  If its already set up, there are a handful of KB articles that will show you how to turn it on.

If someone helped you give them kudos. Research all info!
