The proxy could not connect to the destination in time to a valid URL


we are using McAfee Web Gateway. When accessing this URL from out internal systems, we get the message "The proxy could not connect to the destination in time". When we access this site from an external system, the site is accessible. Do you know what should we edit in order to provide access to the site from our internal systems?

Thank you in advance,

Hope you are doing well.

The 502 message is used by the McAfee Web Gateway to alert a client that a connection to the destination could not be established or that the destination provided an invalid response
