502 Error on JS front end after Atlas install

I am trying to give the Atlas/Headless WP environment a spin but struggling to get it running on my machine (Windows 11).

Using a completely fresh installs with both the Scaffolding and Portfolio blueprint the JS front end just shows a 502 error.

The WP backend and the DB definitely work, but the server log on NGINX has the following:

[error] 25000#11692: *9 WSARecv() failed (10054: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host) while reading response header from upstream, client: ::1, server: headless.local, request: “GET / HTTP/1.1”, upstream: “”, host: “headless.local”
[error] 25000#11692: *9 connect() failed (10061: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it) while connecting to upstream, client: ::1, server: headless.local, request: “GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1”, upstream: “”, host: “headless.local”, referrer: “http://headless.local/

I’ve seen similar topics on here blame Windows Defender for this, but from what I can see local.exe is allowed through the firewall there.

I’ve also updated node and npm via the terminal, and this doesn’t seem to make any difference.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have the exact same problem with my new install.
How did you resolve this?

I didn’t, just moved on as it’s clearly not ready for production.

Hi @Dennis-L

Can you try changing your router mode to see if that helps?
