Thanks Glen, no, the blackberry directory on my desktop can't be reached over the Web. What would I need to do to achieve that? I see you mention an asp page, do I have to create a BlackBerry.asp page which corresponds to my C:\BlackBerry folder?
All our pc's are in a lan so I guess I don't have a router to redirect port 1433. I have WinXP SP2.

You must be able to see the directory, eg.

http://nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn/images/imageHelp.htm

where nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn is your external IP address and /images (or whatever) is your Web directory.

If you want to use internal IP addresses on your lan, I have an enhancement to do that (it "pulls" images, rather than "push" them):

http://www.newdalesystems.com/Articles/Article017/images.zip

You just need to replace the original asp/htm files with the revised ones. Also, this enhancement has a new XML configuration file that will hide the server parameters in the browser by setting a flag on (instructions are in that file). The updated article explains how this enhancement works.

I'm not sure what you're asking, but...

When you unzip images.zip, you will see another file imagesPackage.zip that you need to unzip.

It's just a little vbscript on the desktop web server making connections to SQL Servers and issuing SQL queries on those servers.

Hi Glen, I've downloaded the files and I'll be looking at them(on and off :-)) during the weekend.
In a previous reply, you say, "The updated article explains how this enhancement works", where's the updated article?
In your last reply, you say, "desktop web server". What is it?

Nice article.

As an FYI. BlackBerries can get to https pages as long as the certificate is from a trusted Certificate Authority such as Verisign.

Hi Ben,

Thank you for that update on trusted authorities. Also, while we're in error correction mode, third-party PDF readers are only required for reading downloaded files (not sure why BB doesn't give better support for this).
