I can launch BBMaps from the Bold device simulator and retrieve maps fine from a standard wireless connection, but when using the same laptop at work (behind a firewall), the BBMaps application cannot see any external data.
P.S Don't think this anything to do with the MDS simulator, as I've trie with that also. Is there an other setting that need to be applied for this to work.

It sounds like your firewall is blocking the connection. Are you able to browse to external web sites using the BlackBerry Browser? Do you have a proxy server in your environment? If so, please see this link.

Thanks for your reply. I've tried setting the proxy settings in rimpublic.properties, however I still cannot get any map data when using BBMaps on the Bold device simulator. Does BBMaps even require the MDS simulator to function, as I see no activity in the MDS simulator console when I fire up BBMaps. Maybe its attempting to use direct TCP.
Unless BBMaps has a seperate configuration, not sure?.
