What is BlackBerry Mobile Data System - Connection Service (MDS-CS)?

MDaemon’s MDS-CS permits behind the firewall access to files and web applications from BlackBerry devices. This will (for example) allow you to access your private Intranet without a VPN connection.

MDS-CS also allows access to network file shares from the Files application on the BlackBerry smartphone.

MDaemon’s MDS-CS by default runs on port 8080. You may configure this within the MDaemon GUI:

  1. Click the Setup menu
  2. Click Mobile Device Management 
  3. Expand BlackBerry Enterprise Server
  4. Click MDS-CS
  5. Edit the Web server listens on port field
  6. Click Ok 

BlackBerry Device OS 5.0 may require configuring the BlackBerry Browser manually on the smartphone:

  1. Click the Options icon 
  2. Select Advanced Options 
  3. Select Browser 
  4. Select BlackBerry Browser for the Default browser configuration: field 

BlackBerry Device OS 6.0 and above should automatically detect whether the URL is available via the Internet Browser or the BlackBerry Browser.
