Editing the server.xml and changing the port# fixed the issue.

Hi David,


Looking at your description of the problem, it seems you want to access bamboo over the proxy URL - "

If this URL is proxy then you need to configure proxy settings in Bamboo Tomcat's server.xml file and also configure your proxy settings for whatever proxy server is used here.

Refer these documents for more info:
