Did you look in the 'testing' sections?

Never mind.

Here's my guess:  what you need to do is send the _exact same_ HTTP request
message that you would have sent to the origin server, but send this
request to
the IP number and port of the proxy server.

A proxy server is one that won't yell at you when you ask it for a page that
isn't its page.

For sanity:

Download Lynx. <<http://lynx.browser.org/>http://lynx.browser.org/>
Configure it to use the proxy.
Turn on trace mode.
Review the action trace from how it uses the proxy.
