Enable MDS for a User on BES 4.1
In order for a blackberry user to use the browser to surf the internet, the MDS service must be enabled on the BES. It is enabled and running after a default install but the first user added to the server can not surf.
The user info page shows BlackBerry MDS Connection Service Enabled: False
Right-click the user and select Enable Connection Services
Now the user info pages shows BlackBerry MDS Connection Service Enabled: True
Of course, you must also set up the proxy settings for MDS before it will work.
Click the Connection Service tab at the top.
Click Edit Connection Service Properties
Select Proxy and then Proxy Mappings
The Proxy String setting should be DIRECT, assuming you have a simple router and not a proxy server on your network.
