[Http-recorder] setting up the proxy....

I setup and ran the proxy.pl program.

My PC is a 10.10. address on a network
the proxy.pl is running on a server on that network, listening on default 8080 (verified).

I set my IE to use the IP address of the server as the proxy server, and
port 8080.

I verified with tcpdump that the IE is talking to the proxy server.

BUT...every URL I put into the IE browser comes back with a DNS error.

The server that the proxy is running on has DNS resolution capability.

Do I need to reboot after switching to proxy mode in IE? or is there more needed?
Or does this only work when the outgoing browser is on the same server as the
proxy server?

below is the proxy.pl I'm using:


    use HTTP::Proxy;
    use HTTP::Recorder;

    my $proxy = HTTP::Proxy->new();

    # create a new HTTP::Recorder object
    my $agent = new HTTP::Recorder;

    # set the log file (optional)

    # set HTTP::Recorder as the agent for the proxy
    $proxy->agent( $agent );

    # start the proxy
