External Network Connections application control policy rule


This rule specifies whether an application can make external network connections. You can set this rule to prevent the application from sending or receiving any data on the BlackBerry® device using an external protocol (such as, WAP or TCP). You can also set this rule so that an application prompts the user before it makes external connections through the BlackBerry device firewall.

Default setting

The default setting is Prompt User.

Minimum requirements

  • Java® based BlackBerry device
  • BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.0
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 4.0
