How to connect BalckBerry simulator to internet ?



I´m new to blackberry simulator and I would like to know how to connect it to the internet.

I have installed BlackBerry_Email_MDS_4.1.4 and BlackBerry_Simulators_4.5.0.81_8800.

I launch MDS and I can access the MDS page on localhost:8080 on the computer explorer. Then I launch the simulator but anytime I try to access to a page it says that the selected MDS is not available. Is seems as if the blackberry simulator does no see the MDS.

How do I configure the blackberry to see the MDS?

The BlackBerry Smartphone 8800 Simulator is configured to automatically recognize the MDS-CS simulator if it is running.


Can you ensure that you launch the MDS-CS simulator first (command window opens and status messages will be displayed).  When the window stops displaying status messages the MDS-CS simulator has finished loading.  At this point, launch the Smartphone simulator.


If the Smartphone simulator has connectivity, you will see status messages scrolling in the MDS-CS simulator window.

I launch the MDS simulator first. The command windows opens and the status is display. The laste messages are:


<2010-02-08 09:20:14.940 CET>:[39]:<MDS-CS_MDS>:<DEBUG>:<LAYER = SCM, Web Server

<2010-02-08 09:20:21.644 CET>:[40]:<MDS-CS_MDS>:<DEBUG>:<LAYER = SCM, EVENT = Ex

Then I launch the blackberry simulator but nothing happens in the MDS sumulator. The blackberry simulator does not  interact with the MDS.


what could be wrong?


Thanks & Regards.
