I have a MAS s2500 as my router (10.1.10.41) and a proxy server for internet filtering (10.1.10.160). I have all devices pointing to the s2500, as the default gateway. When I go to the s2500 and enter itself as the default gateway it gives me the message: #Error: Default gateway IP address conflicts with vlan 1 IP address. The s2500 currently points to the proxy server as the default gateway. Is that the correct way to have it?

the default gateway is in principle your next step, so your clients point to the MAS and then your MAS should point to the next routing device.so setting the default gateway to the device itself doesn't make sense, you would create some kind of never ending loop.
if a proxy server is a wise choice is hard to say, if it also routes it might work.
