hi all,
i m havin problem with my application becoz of the operator

proxy.I am trying to write a MIDP2.0 application on a Nokia 6600 that

needs to communicate using GPRS of Idea

cellular(India)(www.ideacellular.com).

Idea cellular has published an HTTP Proxy address that various Symbian

C++ applications (e.g. Opera browser) use successfully to access

Internet content.

but i have problem with my appication becoz of this proxy ....i have

tested my application on other operator(HUTCH(www.hutch.co.in)there is

not proxy setting in hutch) and my software works fine.So what are the

settting i need to do in my mobile or what code i need to add in my

appication so that it works fine in the present or absence of operator

proxy.

The midlet just send a simple http request to a remote server.

If some has the solution to this problem pls help me or if u want any

more information if i m not clear pls let me know.

thank you
Romy

OTA Settings for OTA handsets

There are certain mandatory parameters for GPRS/MMS settings which needs to configure in every handset to enable it for GPRS/MMS servcies. These parameters are;

GPRS Settings

APN = imis ( in small letters)
Data Bearer = GPRS
Proxies = Enable
IP Address/Proxy Address = 10.4.42.15
Port No./Proxy Port No. = 9201 ( for WAP 1.0 handset ), 8080 (for WAP 2.0 handset)
Homepage = http://www.ideafresh.com


MMS Settings

APN = mmsc (in small letters)
Data Bearer = GPRS
Proxies = Enable
IP Address/Proxy Address = 10.4.42.15
Port No./Proxy Port No. = 9201 ( for WAP 1.0 handset), 8080 (for WAP 2.0 handset)
Homepage = http://10.4.42.21:8002
Alongwith this there is one more setting which is required for handset to be used as modem;


GPRS Modem Settings

GPRS = When Needed
APN = internet (in small letters)
Out of the above, some parameters which are optional for some handsets like Proxies and Port No. These depend upon the handset capability itself. In GPRS settings, the profile name or the connection name can be any thing. Normally for WAP, we keep IdeaFreshGPRS and for MMS, it is IDEA_MMS. These GPRS settings can be at different places in different handsets e.g. in Nokia, this is at Services, in Samsung, this is at FunBox, in Sony Ericsson, in Data Connection/Wap Browing..and so on. And the MMS settings are normally at the Multimedia Message Settings part. So you need to find the proper place to feed in the right settings at right place.
