    Question This may be stupid

    Advertisement



    Ok, I am not a newbie to IT, but to BES & BlackBerries.

    What are some uses for the VPN on a Blackberry/BES?

    Also some uses for the MDS?

    ((USES ON THE BB, Not what VPN or MDS is))


    I Guess what I am trying to see is how I can use them to bennifit my tech staff.

    I don't really know what apps/etc. on a BB can use the services. (I am not a applications/programming person)

    MDS can be used for many applications on the BB, internet is just one of them

    Ok,I just am not familiar with what apps availible for use with the vpn/MDS for the BB.

    If I could load a windows app on my BB I would not have any questions.

    Think of MDS proxy. For example I can RDP and VNC to my Windows servers or computers from my blackberry from any location if I'm in a bind. This is a secure connection so I don't have to worry about someone outside getting in. BES routes through your network and BIS is routing through your provider's network.

    Just thought I'd let you know how this sounds to a Non-IT guy:

    Think of blah blah blah blah blah blah blah Windows or computers from my blackberry blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah secure connection blah blah blah blah blah.
