Indeed. I think the original question has been answered; we can't help if HYBI doesn't know what it wants. It's clear to me, however, that a) the CONNECT approach isn't a panacea (and indeed may cause more problems than it solves), and b) Upgrade on port 80 is workable, provided that you can accept that not all attempts are successful (a trait shared by any approach on port 80).
