It will do this the same way it handles all requests - there shouldn't be a 
problem with running on strange ports, or the fact that your application and 
the proxy are on the same host.

The browser knows where you want to link to based on what you type in the 
address bar, like it always does.  But when you have a proxy server set (in 
this case the JMeter one), instead of going ahead and making the request to 
the specified URL, it goes and tells the proxy server "I want to make a 
request like this".  The JMeter proxy will record this request and then go 
ahead and make it any, returning the response.

So essentially you can consider the proxy as a transparent sniffer, sitting on 
the wire between your browser and the server(s), recording the requests that 
go by.  Because of this it will always capture the host, port, path, query 
string, POSTDATA, etc. irrespective of where the server is hosted.

So, the short answer to your question is "it just works". :-)
