Bitbucket IIS reverse proxy 502 error

I want to test setting up a reverse proxy in a DMZ zone to the company's Bitbucket, Jira, and Confluence servers.  I am using IIS on Windows Server 2016 and this article:

I managed to get Jira and Confluence up and running just fine, even going so far as to add a second connector and turn it into an SSL reverse-proxy connection on each.

With bitbucket however, all I get is "502 invalid response from upstream content server" with just trying to proxy over HTTP per the article.  This is what my server.xml Connector is:

<Connector port="7990" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
compressableMimeType="text/html,text/xml,text/plain,text/css,application/json,application/javascript,application/x-javascript" /> is the base URL for the server

My best lead is the following error in the Tomcat logs, but I don't know how to address it: Broken pipe

Any advice on how to address the proxy 502 problem?

Hi! There are many things at play here, but have you had a look at this guide to see if it helps?

Btw, if you're setting up a proxy to listen on port 80 you should most definetly set the Base URL to be on and not on
