I have a proxy setting that I need to use to connect to a site.  Is
there a way to monitor and verify that the connection to the url is
actually using the proxy settings?

One of the tests that I did was put in a fake username, but the web page
results were still returned.  I'm not quite sure why the connection
would still yield data if the proxy settings are incorrect.

Any ideas?
