consider the following very simple nginx config:
listen 127.0.0.1:123 ssl;
I instruct nginx to listen on the same port and IP, one time without
ssl, one time with ssl. IMHO this is a broken config, however nginx
What would you say? Should nginx reject such a config? Right now you
only get an error at request time.
It gets even worse, if the 2nd server is configured with the ssl
directive instead of “listen ssl”:
In that case you don’t even see an error in the logs anymore and clients
can’t connect via https anymore.
