Setting access to network documents from a BlackBerry device

With a BlackBerry® device running BlackBerry® Device Software 5.0 or later and a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server 5.0 or later, a BlackBerry device user can exchange files with a network computer. The user can send network access commands that request a list of files, the properties of a folder or file, or the file. For this test, there must be files in the Remote Dowload folder and in the Local folder. Any kind of file is acceptable.

You can use the BlackBerry® Performance Engineering Resource Kit to test the exchange of files between a shared network location and the simulated BlackBerry devices. To test this exchange, you must set up a computer that acts as the network location. The computer must have the following two folders:

  • a Remote Download folder that stores the files that are sent to the simulated BlackBerry devices; this folder must have host files
  • a Remote Upload folder that stores the files that are sent from the simulated devices

The computer that hosts the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator must have a folder, the Local folder, that contains the files that are sent from the simulated BlackBerry devices.

After the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator sends the files from the simulated devices to the Remote Upload Folder, the network computer stores the files in the Remote Upload folder. The BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator retrieves the files that are in the Remote Download folder but does not store them after it retrieves them. The files are not stored on the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator.
