My Device: T-Mobile & curve 8900

[Curve 8900]opera mini cannot use WIFI, say 'IT policy not allowed'

[Curve 8900]opera mini cannot use WIFI, say 'IT policy not allowed'


Phone device:Blackberry curve 8900

Application: Opera 4.2 international edition

IT Policy: I'm in China, haven't join any BES/BIS service, the IT policy is turn off


Problem: opera mini can use EDGE, but cannot use WIFI, say :


"The application operette$2dhifi has attempted to open a connection to a location inside the firewall and outside the firewall which is not allowed by your IT policy"


My Action: 


follow the instruction(Method 3---solution 3) to reset my BB to factory.



1. First time, After reset to factory, turn off "mobile network", turn on WIFI, then active opera mini,

------- The WIFI works fine,

------- but the EDGE cannot work(say IT policy not allowed). 



2. Second time, After reset to factory, turn on"mobile network", turn off WIFI, then active opera mini,


------- The EDGE works fine,

------- but the WIFI cannot work(say IT policy not allowed). 


Tech Material:  

After google, someone comment that: active the "AllowSplitPipeConnection" in IT policy, can solve the problem.

But the policy is inactive by default for security concern,which defined in <IT POLICY Document>


Defines whether applications can be enabled and disabled to open both internal and external connections simultaneously. 

Enabling split pipe connections presents a security issue because, when enabled, applications can surreptitiously collect data from inside the firewall and send it outside the firewall without any auditing.

By default, if no setting is specified for this item, split pipe connections are disabled on the handheld. 



Help: How to solve the abnormal? How to make the opera mini works safe on WIFI? Thanks.
