[PROXYPER] Proxy connection :Unable to send request

Can someone address why the Client parameter 2/6/3 is asking for "Host Name"
over the IP Addy of the NIC/Machine that the PerProxy is located on?
I ask because I run a Client and my LAN's PerProxy on the same machine. I
have been running with all Client's parameter 2/6/3 set to the IP Addy of
the PerProxy's machine/NIC. It has been working very well.
This seems very subtle, but I don't get the significance.
