HTTP Request via Proxy (connect ECONNREFUSED 127.0.0.1:80)

Hi everyone!

I’m trying to use a proxy server in HTTP Request (I put it in the options section of the node)
And this kind of error occurs, no matter what server address I specify:

{
"status": "rejected",
"reason": {
"message": "connect ECONNREFUSED 127.0.0.1:80",
"name": "Error",
"stack": "Error: connect ECONNREFUSED 127.0.0.1:80 at TCPConnectWrap.afterConnect [as oncomplete] (net.js:1146:16)",
"code": "ECONNREFUSED"
}
}
NodeApiError: UNKNOWN ERROR - check the detailed error for more information

We’re currently on n8n v. 0.142.0, and it’s being run in Docker.

I’m trying proxy servers from this list: Free proxy list, public proxy servers list online, live proxies

Please help me understand, how to fix it.

Welcome to the community @alfomin

Are you running the proxy server locally? What version of n8n are you using?

v. 0.142.0

i also get this when using a local proxy on local network. it happened since the switch over to a new backend tool in n8n I believe.

I also have this error. I’m running N8N under https://docs.cloudron.io/
