      BlackBerry
       tab, perform the following actions:
      1. If your organization requires that users provide a username and password to connect to the proxy server and the profile is for multiple users, in the 
        Username
         field, type 
        %UserName%
        . If the proxy server requires the domain name for authentication, use the format

         device users can change. The default setting is

      2. Optionally, you can specify a list of addresses that users can access directly from their

         devices without using the proxy server. In the 
        Exclusion list
         field, type the addresses (FQDN or IP) and use a semicolon (;) to separate the values in the list. You can use the wildcard character (*) in an FQDN or IP (for example, *.example.com or 192.0.2.*).
