Cannot use proxy that use port 80

I don't know why I can't use proxy that has port 80.
Every other ports works fine.
Is this conflicting with my Cable Internet?
How can I fix this?

Using Windows XP SP1

Try changing the port on the proxy server to something other than 80.  Probably have some conflicts with other services running on same port (ex. web server).

If you're trying to get through a firewall, for instance, some of them now have the ability to analyze up to layer 7 and figure out exactly what is trying to tunnel through port 80 and block it.

Make sure your router does not have remote administration turned on and on port 80.  This will interfere with your proxy.
