Error: connect ECONNREFUSED

Hello, I am learning how to find vulnerabilities in APIs and I have little IT experience.
I’ve checked:
ssl: off
request timeout in ms: 0

This proxy requires authentication: unchecked
Use the system proxy: unchecked
Add a custom proxy configuration: checked
Proxy Type HTTP HTTPS - checked
Proxy Server: : 8083
Proxy Auth: off
Sorry if this is a noob question but I am dumbfounded I have googled for hours with no working solution.

I also disabled any firewalls, unless my ISP is blocking me? Again noob here don’t know what i’m talking about!
