Locked and Loaded. lolol
Sportin a kBerry Curve
mine 2 (now)
So if it does no harm, I'll enable mine. Once you grant access to something will it always allow it and not ask you over and over?
How do i disable my firewall? I have a 8700v which is unlocked.
When i attempt to use bbSpell, i get this error :
"The application bbSpell has attempted to open a connection to a location inside the firewall and outside the firewall which is not allowed by your IT policy"
I thought I managed to remove the IT policy (because it doesnt show anymore on one of the screens in options)
When I click on "enabled" in firewall, it doesnt give me an option to change it. I am assuming this is why i cant use bbSpell or Corrector (and a few other apps like Opera as well). But i cannot disable the firewall. Is that normal?
Could it also be because i'm running the 8707v software on my 8700v?
I am on BIS2 with a local telco provider. I am able to get connected to the internet (but i understand that just because i have access to the net doesnt mean the apps will work)
Any help is greatly appreciated.

You could also try the following on your bb:
I hope this helps!
- Under Options, open "Advanced Options"
- Under "Advanced Options" open "Applications"
- Scroll down the list to the entry for bbSpell etc.
- Click on the trackwheel and select "Edit Permissions" from the menu
- On the Permissions screen, Expand "Connections"
- Change the "Carrier Internet" option to allow and save the new setting

colabnet, thanks for the reponse. Tried it but it still didnt work.
Is everyone with a non-BES 8700v able to disable the firewall?
Hi arul, have you tried to reset your firewall? I have the firewall enabled and I wasnt getting access to an app, so I went into my firewall and reset it. Just a thought, trying to help ya!
Options, security, firewall, click trackwheel and reset settings
Let us know if this helps any, good luck.
hey cp6169 - thanks for the suggestion - but still no luck...i cant seem to use any app that requires a connection to the net. Bummer!!!
Maybe it's something to do with my service provider rather than the unit itself.
But i still find it strange that i cannot disable the firewall. Ah well....just gotta keep trying
thanks guys for the suggestions
Well chin up arul, this will be fixed sooner or later. Have you tried to contact your provider and ask if the BB is still existent on any BES or BIS for that matter? Also, when you aquired the BB did you do a restore of the OS by any chance?
After i got the BB i updated the software to the lastest available - actually, it's now running on the OS for the 8707v..
My brother got me this unit from UK - so i dont think i can check if it's on BES with my existing provider. I am on BIS2 with my existing service provider now.
I messed around with the settings and i now dont get the IT policy error - now it's this instead - "java.io.IOException: could not find a service book entry for IPPP". Does this mean it's the service provider or that the TCP/IP settings havent been set right?
Whenever I get service book entry for IPPP I go into the app, disable the MDS proxy, and it works fine.
Also check here...
Nope - no luck. When i check "Disable MDS Proxy" (this is for bbCorrector), i get the IT Policy error. When i uncheck "Disable MDS Proxy" I get BBCorrector Error: Could not find a service book entry for IPPP.
Dont worry about it - i can live without these extra apps. Nice to have but not essential. Thanks
