    basically i have a file server set up so I can browse my computer's drive via my Blackberry's browser. unfortunately Telus blocks serving webpages on port 80 (the default), so I have my server mapped to port 81, so to visit my site you go to 98.56.45.xxx:81 and i have confirmed that this works. the problem is whenever i try this with my bb it fails for some unknown reason. help?
    even opera mini can browse it.

    error is gateway time out.

    Have you tried changing browser emulation to (iE or Firefox)? I don't have a clue but am throwing out suggestions.

    the connection refused issue sounds like it's trying to connect on the the default port, which is blocked. I think it is not mapping the port, as Opera can connect fine.
