TLS for a generic TCP session?

Hey All,

I was looking over the feature differences between nginx and nginx-plus
and
its not clear to me if nginx by itself supports TLS termination for a
generic TCP session.

If it does not support TLS termination for TCP sessions, then are my
only
other options :

  1. building the mainline source with the following options to configure?
    or
  2. use nginx-plus download?

Could someone kindly clarify?

–with-stream_ssl_module

or

There are no differences between -plus and -oss in this area – both
do support TLS termination in the stream module.

Yes, you are right, you need “–with-stream_ssl_module” configure flag.

You can find more information about our nginx-oss packages that we
build and ship here:
