    I configure safari with auto proxy configuration, insert the proxy server name, and click apply.
    However, if i go to network-tools.com and do a traceroute, the trace does not show the proxy server
    in the series of IP address's. I have tried with several different server names but i makes no
    difference. I'm not real schooled in networking, so perhaps i'm missing something, but it seems
    like safari is ignoring the fact that i have proxy turned on. Thanks.

    Some servers may not show... but why are you not using the traceroute in Network Utilities? The traceroute is from their server not your computer.

    Just a heads up, some ISPs do not allow the use of a proxy server.
