[Webtest] Browser Recording Tool - Proxy settings

I am also having trouble getting started. My application/web server is
not local and I am using a Firefox (my default browser) on Window XP
connected to internet via LAN without a proxy server.=20

When I start the tool, it says Not ready, initializing for a session w/o
ever changing. But if I click on New session button, it says it's
recording. But nothing happens to the recording tool as I am clicking
away on the browser. I tried browsing with IE. Nothing happens. I
changed the browser setting to use proxy server (localhost, 8088) then
the recording tool works records <invoke> but I can't get the page on
the browser.=20

I'm pretty sure that this has nothing to do with the tool but my
ignorance in the network setting. But any help will be appreciated.

Make sure that basepath ist really empty and doesn't contain e.g. a

This is a good sign :-) At least the proxy is used now.

You must select the checkbox such that local connections are _not_

What browser are you using?
What is your operating system?
Did you see output on the console window? What was it?

Are you behind a corporate firewall?
