Shoutcast admin login on BlackBerry

I am involved in an Internet station that uses a Shoutcast server. I need to login to the Shoutcast administrator webpage while on the move (I could do this on my Nokia E71's web browser). I can't seem to get it to work in the BB browser or Opera Mini. On a PC browser, if you visit it takes you to an html page with some basic listener stats and an option to login for more detailed administration. If I use the same URL in the BB browser it simply opens up the actual audio stream. On Opera Mini it just produces a page filled with tons of text data/gibberish code.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can get my BlackBerry 8520 to actually get to the same version of that I see on my PC?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

The Shoutcast DNAS determines whether to serve up the audio stream or admin/stats page based on the browser's user-agent string. To change this in the native Blackberry web browser, go into options --> browser configuration and set Browser Identification to "Internet Explorer".
