Reverse-proxy WebGate with form-based login. Anonymous authentication scheme for login/logout pages. Backend webserver is IIS 6.0, no SSL configured. 


When form-based login is implemented with passthrough:yes with a WebGate reverse-proxy, login fails with error from the Apache WebGate: HTTP-502 Proxy Error.


With passthrough:no proxy form login is successful.

Without proxy configuration - reverse-proxy serves all pages locally - form login is successful with both passthrough:yes and passthough:no.
