Is the Windows client pulling an IP address?

If you run ipconfig /all you should get your IP address and gateway 

You can set both Firefox and IE to automatically detect proxy 
settitngs.  This may be a good idea just in case your proxy server is 
using a port other that 8080.  In Firefox go to Tool > Options and click 
on the "Connection Settings" button.  In IE go to Tool > Options and 
select Lan.
