Please Login to Remove!

Why would I want to place the Blackberry Router service in the DMZ?

Livelink - Redirection

This has been debating here pretty well, I couldn't find the post, but I think it is generally considered a bad idea.

Documentation exists because it can be done. Some network infrastructures will only allow this type of setup.
All depends on the company.

Go to whomever is telling you to do it, and ask them why they are telling you to do it.
I'm sure your network admin has a reason. Whether it's a valid reason or not is a different story altogether.

They have documentation because it is possible to do it, but I guess the underlining point is, why do you want to do it, what is your reasoning? I think that would be something that could be explained a lot better.

If you like to configure firewalls then go for DMZ.

On the LAN you only need internet access for web browser and port 3101 for SRP connections unless you have a fancy firewall and need to configure more.

Pulled this from the RIM document, "Placing the Blackberry Router in the DMZ"

QUOTE: "Security

A remote BlackBerry Router might enable further security options because the BlackBerry Router does not have encryption keys and therefore does not compromise the security of the BlackBerry Infrastructure if the BlackBerry Router itself is compromised. However, implementing the BlackBerry Router in the DMZ does not necessarily increase security."

If you understand what a DMZ does then you will already have your answer...
