Discussion on: Hosting a Node.js application on Windows with IIS as reverse proxy

Hello Peter,

What a great article, thanks for sharing. PM2 is definitely nice to know. Everything works great and have now hosted my nodejs server on Windows.

However, I keep getting a 502.3 Bad Gateway whenever my request takes more than 2 minutes. So i'm guessing its a timeout issue. However, I can't seem to find where to change the timeout... Do you have any clue?

Hello Ayman,

I haven't encountered this myself but I think you should try to determine where the timeout is happening. Is it IIS that is giving the timeout or is it node.js. Can you execute the request on the local machine directly to the node.js process? If it is giving a timeout then the first thing to do is increase the timeout for the node.js process.
