The Atlassian Marketplace server is not reachable (Connection refused) behind a proxy Edited

Hi Everyone; 


I'm having an issue connecting to Atlassian Marketplace,  my hosted confluence is behind a tiny proxy on port 8888 with no authentication required

The Atlassian Marketplace server is not reachable. To avoid problems when loading this page, you can disable the connection to the Marketplace server. Click here for more information...


atlassian-confluence.log showing the following error: 

2019-10-31 10:32:42,604 WARN [http-nio-8090-exec-3] [atlassian.upm.pac.PacClientImpl] fetchMpacAppInfo Error when querying application info from MPAC: com.atlassian.marketplace.client.MpacException$ConnectionFailure: org.apache.http.conn.HttpHostConnectException: Connect to [,,] failed: Connection refused (Connection refused)


I'm able to curl & on the server   

I also have checked the JVM to include my proxy settings as follows: 

CATALINA_OPTS="-Dhttp.proxyHost= -Dhttp.proxyPort=8888 -Dhttps.proxyHost= -Dhttps.proxyPort=8888 -Dhttp.pac.proxyHost= -Dhttp.pac.proxyPort=8888 -Dhttps.pac.proxyHost= -Dhttps.pac.proxyPort=8888"

Not sure what else to check at this point.

We typically have the following configured and hope it helps,


JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Dhttp.proxyHost=xx.xx.xx.xx"
JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Dhttp.proxyPort=8080"
JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Dhttp.nonProxyHosts=*\|*\|*\|localhost"
JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Dhttps.proxyHost=xx.xx.xx.xx"
JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Dhttps.proxyPort=8080"
JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Dhttp.proxyUser=xxxxx -Dhttp.proxyPassword=xxxxxx"

Unfortunately, this is very old syntax. I'm using confluence 7.0 which uses the new syntax of CATALINA_OPTS="-Dhttp.proxyHost={{Proxy IP}}
