I am configuring Nginx to sit in front of several IIS web servers to do 
load balancing and SSL signing.  THe IIS application is supplied by an 
outside vendor.  I have the load balancing and SSL signing  working, with 
one exception.

The login page doesn't work.  :(

When the vendor hosts this application, they use F5 hardware for SSP and 
load balancing.  They gave me thisrule that they use in the F5 that I need 
to translate to nginx-ese:

HTTP::header remove SWSSLHDR
HTTP::header insert SWSSLHDR [TCP::local_port]

Is anyone here familiar w/ F5 hardwaare that can help translate this?
