- HTTP::Proxy and not using 127.0.0.1

I am getting great results with HTTP::Proxy - as long as I use
127.0.0.1 as the proxy address in a browser on the same machine.
I would like to have a lan-available proxy so have tested with using
the machine ip it is running on: 192.168.0.73, but the proxy doesn't
get contacted, even by a browser on the local machine.
I feel sure this is an easy problem, but the things I have tried so far
haven't fixed it for me:
my $proxy = HTTP::Proxy->new( PeerAddr =>'192.168.0.73',port => 8080 );
my $proxy = HTTP::Proxy->new( LocalAddr=>'192.168.0.73',port => 8080 );
my $proxy = HTTP::Proxy->new( MultiHomed =>1,port => 8080 );
Any suggestions gratefully received.
If it matters, I am using a WinXP machine with Activestate ActivePerl
5.8.8 build 816. The MS-Firewall has port 8080 unblocked.
