Error while pushing defect to Jira



We have a test rail cloud account. We want to integrate it with Jira, but after Jira configuration in test rail when we push defect it fails with below error.

Plugin “Jira_REST” returned an error: Proxy CONNECT aborted due to timeout

Here is the test-url

Can we enable logging so as to identify whats causing failure?
