NGINX Configuration for Multi Server Setup

Post by Maximo1970 »

I've been using Ngnix as a reverse proxy for some time now and managed to get a working solution for my setup. It's lacking in a few areas, but certainly work about. What I would like to get working is the FPS output that's below the camera. I've attached two images below to show and my Nginx conf. The top one shows what I get when access via my Nginx server and the bottom one is when accessing a Zoneminder server directly.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
