Sounds to me like you are trying to put the proxy IP in the wrong spot. Can you detail exactly what you are trying to do?

The IP for this machine should go in network configuration, and the proxy info should go in firefox settings (or whichever browser you are using).

My guess - you're trying to put the proxy address in as the machine IP
