This version sounds very old. The client may have already drop support of such old server version.
Does it run normally before? Why don’t try upgrading the server?

From a security point of view one should update the server to the latest stable version once its available for several weeks/month.
Running such old software can be a security risk.

Ubuntu 14 is also out of support for quiet a long time now.

Using a local reverse proxy does also make a lot sense, even when on LAN only.
Encrypted communication within LAN is also a best practice one should consider.
