We upgraded our BES 4.1 to SP4 and switched the Groupwise access mode from OAPI to SOAP. I can see on the POA web console that the BES clients are initiating a SOAP connection. I also still see the BES server creating C/S connection to the POA for the BB users.

Is this normal behaviour ?

I was under the impression that while using SOAP there would only be SOAP connections from the BES to the POA and no more C/S connections.
