ports blocked by RIM firewalls.... sounds like the original post is going through BES. In this case "RIM's firelwalls" won't be able to read the packet that has the data encrypted after it say IPPP packet type. That would include the payload, which would have the http request.
For Doug, I believe that article says how to get to a site with non-standard port and it looks like that is being used.
In this case, you state that your company blocks outbound port 81... if that is the case, then you answered your own question. However, if that is additional brainstorming, I would say a good place to start is, what is the http error you get on your handheld? Do you see the request hitting your firewall, or web access/error logs?...
Can you get to your webserver from your company computer from internet explorer?
