Re: Connecting your BlackBerry - http and socket connections to the world

Guys we have a problem implementing the socket connection!! We spent a lot of time trying to solve this problem but we got nowhere. The problem is that the socket connection is closed after a while and the device will not receive any data from the server after some time. We don't know what could make this problem, anyone can help please?

Re: Connecting your BlackBerry - http and socket connections to the world

Please do not post questions on this Thread, this is supposed to be an information \thread.  Start your own questions on a new Thread. 


FYI, all connections are automatically closed after two minutes.  To keep a socket open you need to send a keep alive message.  But use Push, don't keep a socket alive.
