- A user requests Internet or intranet content from your organization's content server using the BlackBerry® Browser on a BlackBerry device.
- The BlackBerry device sends the request to the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server over port 3101.
- The BlackBerry Dispatcher sends the request to the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service over port 3200.
- The BlackBerry MDS Connection Service
checks whether the user's BlackBerry device is running an authenticated connection that can support the content request.
If the BlackBerry device is not running an authenticated connection, the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service redirects the user to a login web page. If the user logs in, using an RSA SecurID® user name and passcode, the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service creates a connection to the content server. By default, the BlackBerry device caches the user’s information for 24 hours of activity on the authenticated connection, or 60 minutes of inactivity.
The BlackBerry MDS Connection Service creates an HTTP session for the user and retrieves the Internet or intranet content from the content server. The BlackBerry MDS Connection Service converts the content so that the user can view it on the BlackBerry device, and sends the content to the BlackBerry Dispatcher over port 3200.
- The BlackBerry Dispatcher compresses the content, encrypts it using the device transport key of the BlackBerry device, and sends the encrypted content to the BlackBerry Router.
- The BlackBerry Router sends the encrypted content to the wireless network over port 3101.
- The wireless network verifies that the PIN belongs to a valid BlackBerry device that is registered with the wireless network and sends the encrypted content to the BlackBerry device.
- The BlackBerry device sends a delivery confirmation to the BlackBerry Router, and decrypts and decompresses the content so that the user can view it in the BlackBerry Browser.
