Wi-Fi BlackBerry Infrastructure Wi-Fi Access Mode configuration setting

Description

This setting specifies whether a Wi-Fi® enabled BlackBerry® device can connect to the BlackBerry® Infrastructure over a Wi-Fi network to access the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server or the BlackBerry® Internet Service.

Default value

The default value is Access does not require VPN. A BlackBerry device can bypass active VPN connections when it connects to the BlackBerry Infrastructure over a Wi-Fi network.

Usage

You can configure one of the following options so that a BlackBerry device can connect to the BlackBerry Infrastructure over a Wi-Fi network:
  • If you want a BlackBerry device to always use a VPN connection when it connects to the BlackBerry Infrastructure over a Wi-Fi network, you can choose the Access requires VPN option. You can choose this option if you want to enforce the additional security that a VPN connection provides.
  • If you do not want a BlackBerry device to connect to the BlackBerry Infrastructure over a Wi-Fi network, you can choose the Access disabled option.

Dependencies

When you change this setting, you override the BlackBerry Infrastructure Wi-Fi Access Mode IT policy rule. You can use this setting to configure the access mode for a specific Wi-Fi network, and the IT policy rule to configure the access mode for other Wi-Fi networks.

If you turn off access to the BlackBerry Infrastructure over a Wi-Fi network using the IT policy rule, you cannot override the IT policy rule using this setting.

Minimum requirements

  • Java® based BlackBerry device
  • BlackBerry® Device Software version 5.0
  • BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 5.0
