Hello nginx people,

Is it possible to use nginx to "glue" 2 types of servers into one?

I have a rails server running here:

And I have a couchDB server running here:

I'd like to configure nginx so that it listens on 8080

I want any request directed at:
to be forwarded to
And I want all other requests to be forwarded to

Have any of you done something like this?

Is nginx well suited for this or should I be learning about a true
proxy like squid or varnish?
