[wellylug] Problem accessing local URL with browser

I have a program which uses Firefox to connect
to a port on my home machine (Beauty). At least it tries to,
but the internet proxy (Privoxy) reports that

"Your request for http://beauty:2080/v6.5/index.html could 
not be fulfilled, because the connection to 
beauty ( could not be established."

I can telnet successfully to this IP number. If I disable the
proxy then I get a "connection was refused" error. I'm not
sure where to look next. Can someone enlighten me?
