airControl issues when using a pronto


I have an aTV “issue” with the airControl interface

I can “talk” to my aTv using http commands from my browser (http://apple-tv.local/remoteAction=1 for example)

I can talk to my aTV from the 3rd. party for Mac

I have the 3rd. party app to allow me to control it from my Pronto (ProntoFC) but it fails when trying to open a socket to it on port 80

Anyone know if there is an issue connecting using the http interface thru an pronto? I think it may have soemthing to do with the http library but…

I would really appreciate your help.
