Disable Media Manager FTP Access IT policy rule


This rule specifies whether applications can access the FTP channel from the media manager tool of the BlackBerry® Desktop Manager.

Default value

The default value is False.


This rule controls whether a BlackBerry device can transfer files from the on-board device memory or Advanced Security microSD card using the FTP channel.

When you permit the device to transfer files using FTP, the device does not protect the files using content protection. The device can encrypt the data on the media card if you configure the External File System Encryption Level IT policy rule.

This feature is not available for BlackBerry Desktop Manager 4.2.2 because the Roxio® Media Manager uses the media transport protocol to transfer files.

Minimum requirements

  • Java® based BlackBerry device
  • BlackBerry® Connect™ 4.0 (internal)
  • BlackBerry® Device Software 4.2
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server 4.0 SP6


The BlackBerry® Enterprise Server for Novell® GroupWise® does not support this rule.
