Confluence using multiple ports?

If I use an HTTPS link to access Confluence, like, it works as-is

If I use an HTTP link instead, like, I am rerouted to a secure connection on non-standard port 8443

If I copy a URL that includes the port 8443, and try to use it to link a Jira ticket to a Confluence page, I get an error. (See screenshot attached). If I remove the port from the link, it works.

In a couple cases that I've tried, if I access an existing link from a Jira ticket to a Confluence page, it takes me to port 8443.

Yesterday I shared a link with a co-worker, that happened to include the port 8443, and it did not work for them.

Why are some connections being re-routed to a non-standard port?

It sounds like you instance isnt entirely set up correctly for SSL/HTTPS

Do you know if you are handling the ssl directly in tomcat, or if you are using a proxy to handle the ssl connections. (apache or nginx are common)

There are specific steps to set up jira over https. look at your server.xml file to see what method you are using and if everything it configured correctly. Without knowing that, its hard to determine what you have incorrect.

Confluence by default is not set to run on port 80. It usually runs on port 8080, and then SSL runs on 8443. (these are pretty standard setups for web applications. There is often a front end of some sort that proxies or redirects from 80 to 8080, and 443 to 8443.

Default port for Confluence is 8090. 8080 is default port for jira.
