How to solve "MDS responded with HTTP-403....."

My device simulator is BlackBerry_Simulators_4[1].2.2.114_8300-Vodafone.exe

and the MDS simulator is BlackBerry_Email_MDS_4[1].1.4.exe.

All of these application were installed into 'D:\Program Files\Research In Motion\'.


I had a demo application used for testing the 'push' feature.

But the MDS simulator responded abnormally when I run the application and push a message to the device simulator:

"Contacting BES for 3100000a - MDS responded with HTTP-403: could not map device 3100000a to an IPPP host".


How can i solve the problem?

Re: How to solve "MDS responded with HTTP-403....."

It looks like MDS is having trouble mapping the provided pin to a device registered with the MDS simulator. 


Have you configured your simulator to use the pin 3100000a?  Typically, the default pin for the simulator is 2100000A.  The easiest way to check is on the options->status screen within the simulator.  You will want to ensure that the pin used in the push application is the same as the simulator.
