adding irc to irissi


I use xchat to connect to the chat server at work.
It is an internal chat server - specific to my group
This is what i do

Tunnel to the chat server host:
ssh -L 7767:localhost:7767 casper@192.168.41.29

Then I type this into a terminal to open up the xchat on my local box.
xchat --url=irc://localhost:7767
I guess this points the app to the port I tunneling to - 7767

I want to change clients - I am trying to set up irissi.
I tried connecting with these commands.

Code:
 /connect 172.18.41.29 irc://localhost:7767
 /connect irc://localhost:7767
but i get this
Code:
13:41 -!- Irssi: Removed reconnection to server irc://localhost:7767 port 7767
13:41 -!- Irssi: Looking up irc://localhost:7767
13:41 -!- Irssi: Unable to connect server irc://localhost:7767 port 7767 [Name or service not known]
13:46 -!- Irssi: Removed reconnection to server 172.18.41.29 port 7767

13:46 -!- Irssi: Unable to connect server 172.18.41.29 port 7767 [Connection refused]

You don't need to specify the protocol with irssi and the port is just an argument.
Code:
/connect localhost 7767
For more information,
Code:
/help connect
