Nginx with NO SSL offload

Hi All,

Is there way I configure Nginx not to do SSL offload, i.e Nginx should
receive the HTTPS traffic (by listening on port 443) and forward the same to
the backend server without doing an offload.

I think I can do this if I setup my Nginx in TCP mode (using the third party
module tcp proxy). But, I am wondering if the "NO SSL OFFLOAD" can be
handled by the standard Nginx.

Please let me know.

Thanks, Santos
