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

As a side question to this...Do I need to disable apache running on port 80, prior to
running the proxy on port 8080? This is a live system, so I can't "test" it by shutting
down apache....

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:
