I use it from time to time and I am behind a firewall. RIM, being very peer to peer
functioning as both client and server, you must setup your firewall to work just as you
would setup any other TCP server and
client. This generally means that you just need to setup your router to point port 7070
on your machine. This takes me about 30 seconds to do, from first thought through shutting
down my telnet session.
If you have an extreme case, such as a strict cable modem ISP, you may be able to get
away with hijacking a known, or possibly unkown, allowed port. Some good ones to try
are 20, 21, 22, 25, 80, 88, 110, 119,
220, 443, 666, 4000, 5010, 5190, 6699, 8875, 8888, 26000, 27001, 27010, 27015, or 27960.
I would try port 80 first, port 20 second.
To make this switch just find the line in the RIM source that says:
And then change it to the the desired port number.
I will make sure to turn on my RIM to check for you.

Maybe I will make a how to out of what I just posted.

The contradiction so puzzling to the ordinary way
of thinking comes from the fact that we have to use
language to communicate our inner experience
which in its very nature transcends lingistics.
