Fisheye proxy settings on Windows. JIRA looks good, Fisheye is jumbled.


We have installed JIRA and Fisheye on a remote server running Windows Server 2008 r2. Both Jira 7.10.0 and Fisheye 4.5.3 are installed as Windows services. While remote desktop connected to the server we can browse to localhost:8080 for Jira and localhost:8060 for Fisheye. Both work properly. We've setup DNS entries to access the sites via and

Traffic comes in on 443 and is translated to 4343 to the load balancer (jetNEXUS) where we have SSL offload and then layer 7 route to the destination app server on port 8080 (Jira) or 8060 (Fisheye). We're using Windows 2008R2\IIS7.5 for Fisheye and the jetNEXUS are self-contained CentOS-based appliances.

Accessing works correctly.

Accessing loads but the pages are broken. This happens with all browsers. Using development tools to view network traffic all resources load with status 200. Using development tools to view page source for Fisheye I see 5 nested doctype statements. For example:

code... no end of head tag
code ..... etc.

In server.xml for Jira we have this section:

<Connector port="8080" maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" connectionTimeout="20000" enableLookups="false"

maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" protocol="HTTP/1.1" useBodyEncodingForURI="true" redirectPort="8443"

acceptCount="100" disableUploadTimeout="true" bindOnInit="false" secure="true" scheme="https"

proxyName="" proxyPort="443"/>

For Fisheye we've tried several combinations of proxy settings including:
http bind = :8060
Proxy Scheme = not set
Proxy Host = not set
Proxy port = not set
Site URL =


http bind = :8060
Proxy Scheme = https
Proxy Host =
Proxy port = 443
Site URL =

We've also tried JVM input arguments:

JVM input arguments -Dfisheye.library.path= -Dfisheye.inst=C:\Atlassian\Data\fecru -Djava.awt.headless=true -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -Djava.endorsed.dirs=C:\Atlassian\fecru-4.5.3\lib\endorsed -Xmx1024m


JVM input arguments -Dfisheye.library.path= -Dfisheye.inst=C:\Atlassian\Data\fecru -Djava.awt.headless=true -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -Djava.endorsed.dirs=C:\Atlassian\fecru-4.5.3\lib\endorsed -Xmx1024m -Dhttp.proxyPort=8060 -Dhttps.proxyPort=8060 -Dhttp.nonProxyHosts=localhost

We're not able to get Fisheye to load properly via remote URL.

What are we missing?
