Steps to reproduce
Open Internet Explorer -> go to Internet Settings -> go to Connections tab -> press LAN Settings button -> configure some proxy server.
In <windowsdir>\system32\drivers\etc\hosts add an entry for my.test.host pointing it to 127.0.0.1.
Finally make a request to my.test.host and e.g. localhost.io and witness these requests being forwarded to the configured proxy server.
Resolve hostname; if resolves to localhost then do not let request leave local machine, otherwise forward to proxy.
