For proxy server i use Squid and i not have any problem!if you look about
this you can find many tutorial for the configuration

in your problem now......i thing you must use proxy address the address you
have in network interface and the tinyproxy port

if your NIC have you must put this address as proxy server an
use the 80 port i thing!
