Hello everybody

When I want to connect ArcGIS Server through "Add ArcGIS Server" tool in ArcCatalog, I encounter with this error:

' we were unable to connect to https://localhost:6080/arcgis error: proxy server got bad address from server'

I should say:

 1- few hours ago , I could make this connection and worked properly.

 2- The installed ArcGIS and ArcGIS Server is 10.2.2 and I did not install any other version of ArcGIS on my laptop. Actually ArcGIS 10.2.2 is the first ArcGIS after installing Windows on my laptop.

3- I did not install Web Adapter on my laptop

4- Sql server is 2008 R2

5- Firewall is completely turn off on my laptop

6- i can log into http://localhost:6080/arcgis/manager  

please help me . Thanks in advance

I would like to know why you want that folder accessed through port 6080, because that port is assigned to the ArcGIS Server site. So in effect you will have to make your "realestaste" folder part of the AGS site to have it accessed on port 6080.

Thanks FC Basson for your quick response. It seems that the error be related with the port. because when I want to access my web site, I have to use my laptop's IP (like this : http://192.168.1.6/realstate/index2.html ) and I face with error when I type the port (  http://localhost:6080/realstate/index2.html ) but I CHECKED other ports such 6443,4000,4001,4002,4003 but still I Have the problem. As I mentioned already I can log into  http://localhost:6080/arcgis/manager that use port 6080

I think FC Basson  was trying to say to try http instead of https when using 6080

https requires 6443, but I don't think you need https/6443 for attaching to Server admin thru catalog (on iPad, not my PC so can't tell for sure right now)

Hi Maria

Your error message was for the https connection.  Just double check your connection string in ArcCatalog.

Dear Basson, I restarted my computer and it apparently seams to be solved but still  I should use  http://192.168.1.6/realstate/index2.htm instead of  http://localhost:6080/realstate/index2.htm 

can you help me ?

Ok, I'm not exactly sure what the issue is anymore, but port 6080 will allow you to connect to your ArcGIS Server instance.  Your IP link is connecting through port 80, the default Web server port.  You won't see that index page on port 6080.
