ifconfig -v command in work perimeter reports less interfaces

has someone tried the "ifconfig -v" command via QProcess in work perimeter ?

 

inside the work perimeter you're getting only some interfaces listed -

and the most import ones - the interfaces belonging to cellular networks -

aren't listed

 

do I need some special configuration ?

or will cellular traffic only listed in personal work perimeter ?

 

or are there any other ways to get the traffic inside work permiter ? esp. enterprises want to know about the traffic of their employees

Re: ifconfig -v command in work perimeter reports less interfaces

This is the expected behaviour.  All network traffic is routed through the BlackBerry Enterprise Server interface.  It is not possible to make a direct connection over cellular from there.

 

The transport over which the BlackBerry Enterprise Server network connection is routed (cell or WiFi) is handled automatically.

Re: ifconfig -v command in work perimeter reports less interfaces

thanks explaining the behaviour

 

ifconfig -v is the only way (I know) to track the used data on the device.

or is there another way ?

 

enterprises want to monitor data traffic consumed by their employees and to get a notification if limits are reached.

 

any idea ?

Sorry no, I don't think there is a way to capture that in the enterprise perimeter.
