The proxy settings on this computer are not configured correctly for Web discovery

I have a WiFi network comprising a Netgear router, a desktop and a
laptop. An ASP web service is set up on the desktop IIS. But when I try
to add a web reference to an ASP web application developed on the
laptop to access the desktop web service, I get an error message : "The
proxy settings on this computer are not configured correctly for Web

The desktop and laptop both have the Windows XP firewall enabled. The
internet browser LAN settings are not set to use a proxy server. I
don't have a proxy server on the LAN (as far as I know).

I found the following info:

"... You need to explicitly specify the address and port of the proxy
server on your network in order to make services outside the firewall
available to the Web Browser in the Add Web Reference dialog box... To
specify a proxy server for Internet Explorer ... select Use a proxy
server for your LAN. Specify and the address and port number that
matches your network..."

Do I need a proxy server? And which address and port number do I need?
What do I need to configure and on what machine?

Any help would be appreciated.
