Hello

Please forgive me for this newbie question, but how do I set up XAMPP to work with a proxy?

Thats a very strange question and requires very deep knowledge into HTTP and webservers. I am not sure, if you really want to use Xampps Apache to request anything from a Proxy.

Could you tell us more precisely what your trying to achieve?

Hello Nobbie

I successfully installed bWAPP on XAMPP. I am trying to use Burp Suite as a proxy. Burp Suite works just fine as a proxy with any other site. However, when I try to visit the bWAPP site, Burp Suite doesn't list it under the Targets tab.

Ok, so you dont want to use Xampp "to work with a Proxy", you want your browser to work with a Proxy. You do not provide much information, but i think that you are running bWAPP (what i dont know, as well as i dont know Burp Suite) locally with Xampp. Typically, most Proxys come preconfigured to IGNORE requests to a local address (i.e. 127.0.0.1), that would explain your problems to access bWAPP.
