sometime you need to redirect the MDS simulator access not directly to the Internet,

the redirection is via HTTP Proxy (for example Squid).

here’s how to configure..

  • Open theĀ file. The file can be found in the following locations:For BlackBerry MDS-CS Simulators installed with BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse


    For BlackBerry MDS-CS Simulators installed with BlackBerry JDE

    \Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry JDE #.#.#\MDS\config

    For standalone BlackBerry MDS-CS Simulators

    \Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Email and MDS Services Simulators #.#.#\MDS\config

  • Under the [HTTP HANDLER] section, update the following:application.handler.http.proxyEnabled = true



  • To include proxy authentication, update the following under the [HTTP HANDLER] section:application.handler.http.proxyUser=username


  • To include proxy auto configuration parameters, update the following values:application.handler.http.proxyAutoConfig = true



    For the last listed parameter, change 0 to the amount of time you want the BlacKBerry MDS-CS Simulator to cache your config file.
