Default access website that isnt on port 80?

Please Login to Remove!

I need to access a website that does not run on port 80. From my desktop, I simply enter: http://www.___.com:99

My blackberry doesn't allow this. I can reach http://www.____.com, but it fails when I put :99. Does the Blackberry block this. If so, how can I unblock it? It isn't just 99.. I can't reach any sites on 81-99 (haven't tried higher).

Answered my own question.. here's in case anyone else has the same issue in the future.

BlackBerry Search Results

Note - I was able to use Opera and get to the other port just fine. The article above seems to only apply to the Blackberry Browser.

Now if I could only get Opera to surf internal sites behind my BES. i.e. my companies intranet.
