Allow Split-Pipe Connections IT policy rule


This rule specifies whether applications, including third-party applications, can open internal and external connections on a BlackBerry® device simultaneously.

Default value

The default value is No.


Opening internal and external connections simultaneously might present a security issue because applications can collect data from inside the firewall and send it outside the firewall without any auditing.

Minimum requirements

  • Java® based BlackBerry device
  • BlackBerry® Application Suite version 1.0
  • BlackBerry® Connect™ version 4.0 (internal)
  • BlackBerry® Device Software version 3.6
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server for IBM® Lotus® Domino® and BlackBerry® Enterprise Server for Novell® GroupWise® version 4.0
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server for Microsoft® Exchange version 3.6


The BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Novell GroupWise supports this rule in BlackBerry Device Software version 4.0 or later.
