If you are able to configure this mean your proxy is running.
Now your proxy is running (this is localhost) and it communicate through
port 8880 for its web page and proxy pop communication through port
8890. (As you say below).
> I've tried localhost and localhost:8890. (8890 is the port number I chose).

Go to your browser and type for url: telnet://localhost:8890
You should have see a window opening with this line in it or something
