BB uses the file $BBHOME/etc/security to list the IP-adresses that
are allowed to connect to the bbd daemon. My first guess would be that
the IP-address that bbd sees for the incoming connections from the
proxy is not listed in this file, which causes the bbd daemon to
drop the connection immediately.

I believe you need to restart BB after changing this file.
