What are you using for HTTP Proxy settings? A company proxy or something else?
The jmIrc Sourceforge page has an HTTP proxy Java app (HttpIrcProxy.jar), which you can execute on a PC to listen for the incoming jmIrc-tunnelled requests. That's what I use currently. I like that it allows you to set a password.

The command I use to run the proxy is:
'java -jar HttpIrcProxy-0.37.jar -p 80 -w mypass'

That sets it up to listen on port 80 and requires jmIrc to provide the password 'mypass' before it will proxy the request.

I've not tried using another HTTP proxy, but I could try it out for you if you wish.
