There are no limits expect total limit on headers from backend
server (proxy_buffer_size, see ). Header must fit into
proxy_buffer_size, or nginx won't be able to parse backend
response (and will return an error).
In your case most likely reason is different behaviour of your
backend in your nginx setup and your Pound setup. E.g. nginx by
default uses backend name as Host header in request to backend,
You may want to use tcpdump to find out what actually happens on
wire between nginx and your backend, and compare how it's
different from your Pound setup.
