Problems configuring Webscrab to intercept traffic from localhost(Webgoat).

I am trying to go through the Webgoat tutorial and at one point I need to use Webscrap. I configured the proxy though Firefox and I added the LAN settings in Windows, but it still doesn't work.

I can't find a solution on-line, I think I tried everything.

Firefox Configuration: enter image description here

Windows LAN settings:

enter image description here

This is the file I run for Webgoat

enter image description here

This is the file I use for Webscrab enter image description here

If I try to access the Webgoat through this link, webscrab does not intercept anything

If I try to access webgoat through this link, the traffic is intercepted, however it says that the page is not found (Error 404)

I can't a solution on line so I hope here anybody knows how to make it work.

Thank you

in the firefox screenshot you have the default which is to bypass proxies for . Try taking that out. – Rоry McCune Feb 16 '13 at 8:12
And I think you have to decide for one port: 8080 or 8008. – migg Feb 16 '13 at 19:11
This is not a security issue, it is purely a configuration issue (as @Rook described below). Closed as off-topic. – Rory Alsop Feb 17 '13 at 22:03

In your first sceenshot it says:

"NO Proxy For" and it lists and localhost.

Then you are trying to access webgoat on localhost... Perhaps you should look over your configurations more carefully in the future.
