I ran accross a couple issues following the steps in How to configure the BlackBerry MDS simulator to work behind a proxy. I am running the MDS 4.1.2 and 9700 simulators. During web development, I often use Fiddler as a web debugging proxy and I have it set to run on port 8888 of localhost.
First, the PDF document says to set these properties in the [HTTP HANDLER] section.
However, what finally worked (after some googling) was these settings:
It seems like the documentation needs to be updated.
Second, I ran into the issue that it still didn't work for my Widget. I confirmed that using the Browser, it was using the proxy, but not http requests comming from the Widget. Do I have additional setup to do, or is this the expected behavior?

Have you configured your config.xml file to white list the domains you wish to communicate with? This configuration is done in the <access> elements contained in the config.xml file.
Some more information on <access> element configuration can be found here:

I just tried this again to verify. I have the <access uri=> element configured correctly. When I run my widget, it loads <content src=> just fine, and I can see the web page on the 9700 simulator screen. However, I don't see a log of the traffic in Fiddler. When I quit out of the widget, and put the same URL as from my <content src=> in the browser, I see traffic in Fiddler. I am suspicious that the Widgets don't honor the [HTTP HANDLER] section.
