BIS-B and OS 6



We have a BlackBerry App that communicates with our web services and we have a client that recently upgraded from OS 5 to OS 6 devices.


Since then our web services logs show a increase in traffic from BIS-B services i.e.. .rdns.blackberry.net


(our web services are registered for BIS-B)


The client has configured his device in MDS mode, so I expect traffic to be routed through their BES. In the code this is adds the parameter  ";deviceside=false" to the URLs.


Looking into their BES logs, we see logs from their devices to our web services, which is contradictory to our web services logs. This is seems strange.


Is there something else to do with os6 to force the connections to use BES.



All our tests on our devices and our BES  using MDS are routed correctly.


Thanks in advance,
