I see that's the automatic proxy script that your ISP provides you, but
correct me if I'm wrong, but can you really give gaim that sort of
information? The version I'm using (1.5.0) requires the server name and a
correct port information.

Have you tried connecting without using any sort of proxy settings at all?
Otherwise you really do need to find out the real server and use that. Maybe
get that info from the ISP helpdesk?
