The way to connect directly to an xpra HTML5 server is to enter the address
and the port directly to the browser eg. A page
appears prompting for the target  server and port, login credentials and a
few others, and when filled properly the desktop comes up.

connections, so I have something like this

location /xpra {
    # proxy_pass;
    proxy_http_version 1.1;
    proxy_buffering off;

proxy_pass is the main option whose relevance I have checkied, the  other
two are options which seem to useful.

Whenever i try to open a page http//:, the following
Error response

Error code 404.

Message: File not found.

The code for the client is at -
