*** using HTTP proxy server to connect
*** connecting to at port 6667
*** Error trying to cnnect to IRC server, reason: Wrong password.

Bear in mind I also have a VNC server running - which my BlackBerry also connects to fine - on port 25. Any suggestions? The error occurs on any IRC server, password or no password required.
My guess is that jmIrc needs to use its own HTTP proxy. I've not tried using a 3rd party proxy. The proxy provided with jmIrc has the capability to require a password for connections, so perhaps that's an extension from the standard proxy behaviour.
