I am looking for a way to establish an exclusive network connection (over wifi or cellular tcp). By exclusive I mean that while I have my connection open, all other applications cannot access the network at all (i.e. open any new connections or maybe even their existing connections are dropped).
I have searched through the API, but there doesn't seem to be any way to do this. Any ideas? Maybe there is some BES policy to accomplish such thing?

Ok, this answers my question quite straight.
Are you sure about that? I mean, it is easy to prove that something can be done, simply by showing the way to do it, but how to prove it cannot. Could you tell me on what do you base your answer?
Thanks in advance!

So let me rephrase my answer:
Based on my knowledge of the platform (extensive but by no means exhaustive), there is no attribute for any connection that says "I'm exclusive and no other applications can use this connection", with the possible exception of an SMS MessageConnection.
IMHO, this would also run contrary to RIM's security model, since this would allow a single application to take control of the connection, depriving other apps from accessing the network.
Feel free to solicit other opinions.
