Proxy Page Issue

I have an application that I have been working on for a while that implements editing using the attribute inspector. The app was created using one of the local gov't templates and it included a proxy page. Prior to upgrading to ArcGIS Server 10.1, the editing was working and I was not having any issues with the proxy page.

After upgrading to 10.1, anytime the app needs to use the proxy page (editing or POST requests) I get a general error that says "NetworkError: 500 Internal Server Error".

Any ideas as to what might be causing this error? As mentioned above, it only started occurring after the upgrade to 10.1.


So I was looking into this more and found that if I debug the proxy.ashx (using visual studio) and run it on localhost (http://localhost:3274/appname/proxy.ashx) I am able to use the proxy to navigate to the applyedits rest endpoint. However, if I try to use the proxy from where the app sits on my server i get the error and cannot get to the applyEdits rest endpoint.

Summing it up...
This works...

This does not work and I get the error.

The proxy.ashx and proxy.config are saved in the same folder as the html page for the app. Kind of at a loss as to what to check next. As I mentioned in my first post, this only occurred after upgrading to server 10.1 so I think it might have to do with adding the port number (servername: 6080) to the service rest endpoint url.
