Connection reset error or 502 bad gateway

Nayana | Last updated: Feb 06, 2018 12:40PM UTC

I frequently get connection reset error or 502 Bad gateway error while i crawl through a website whereas the initial requests are 200. All the settings and certificates are in place. Not sure on what other settings to make? Please help.

Hi, It sounds like the application is blocking you. Perhaps you are sending too many requests or a web application firewall (WAF) has detected malicious traffic. You can reduce the intensity of Spider using Spider > Options > Spider Engine. Try setting "Number of threads" to 1. Also, speak to the application team. They may be able to add your IP address to a whitelist so it does not get blocked.
