Symptoms

Environment 

WebGate 10.1.4.0.1 deployed with Apache 2.0 reverse proxy. Form-based login with anonymous authentication scheme is implemented. 

Problem

When form-based login is implemented with passthrough:yes with an Apache 2.0 reverse-proxy WebGate, submit of login credentials fails with error HTTP-400 Bad Request.

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.
