WebRTC and NGINX Reverse Proxy



I have a PBX that has a webRTC feature (i.e. you login to PBX website
and you have a virtual handset with all the features).

Is it feasible or possible to use NGINX as a reverse proxy to handle
webRTC ?

A basic NGINX config just using proxy_pass doesn’t seem to work, so I’m
guessing there’s probably more to it than that ?

THanks !


It works with something like this:

location ^~ /webrtc/ {
if ($my_https = “off”) {
return 301 https://$host$request_uri;
limit_conn conn 100;
limit_req zone=basic burst=3000 nodelay;
proxy_pass http://backend;
proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
proxy_read_timeout 600s;
proxy_send_timeout 600s;
proxy_connect_timeout 20s;
proxy_http_version 1.1;
proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
proxy_set_header Connection upgrade;
proxy_set_header Host $host;
