Default re: a connection problem with JMIRC

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Blackberry Curve 8530 (service via Sprint). I have the Jmirc prog installed in the Blackberry. when I try to connect to any server Jmirc starts to connect then drops the connection and gives me the following error message of "Error trying to connect to IRC server, aborting...Exception:Invalid url parameter". Kurai Kitsune had posted on this forum the following:
"I had that same problem for ages. Then found how to fix it via a completely unrelated post, but i'll fill you in.

on the BB menu; Options > Advanced Options > TCP

Then you need to enter the APN used by your network. in my case it ended up as 'orangeinternet' with no username or password. then Jmirc and WirelessIrc worked a charm."
I can't find on the "BB menu: then Options > Advanced Options" the line TCP in my Blackberry.
When I talked to Sprint tech support and told the tech support guy what Kurai Kitsune had posted online and the fact that I can't find the line TCP. All he sead was "we don't support 3rd party software". I also asked the tech support guy what "APN" was. He had no clue as to what it ment.
Now I use The regular Mirc prog all the time on my desktop and laptop (with no problems) os Xp Pro on both systems. And I am fairly good at setting up ethernet and wireless networks. This is my 1st time using the Blackberry. I have never tryed to setup a mobile network link before.
