Go back and read David Boles step-by-stepper. I only did as he wrote,
and localhost was only set in Firefox in his example.

By default you should already have "localhost" set to 127.0.0.1
in /etc/hosts, here's mine with my local junkyard network:

[root iam maps]# more /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain   localhost
192.168.1.104   ru.wayward4now.net      ru
192.168.1.103   ima.wayward4now.net     ima
192.168.1.102   ur.wayward4now.net      ur
192.168.1.101   iam.wayward4now.net     iam


So just doing those edits to firefox should make it run just dandy if
your /etc/hosts file has localhost set. 

Fire up Firefox

click on edit > preferences > advanced > network > settings
and you'll see the page he references. click on the button = 'manual',
then add the following values:

HTTP proxy [127.0.0.1]    Port [ 3128]

That should fire up when you restart Firefox. Did I leave anything out
David? Thank you for your instructions. It was nifty. Ric
