we use an nginx reverse proxy cache to serve media file downloads.

the proxy, nginx is unable to respond to partial-requests and returns
HTTP 200 instead which results in errors for some download clients.

Is there a workaround for this problem? 
- Would it be possible when disabling sendfile or using direct i/o or
forwarding uncached requests directly to the origins and caching in the

Thanks and kind regards,
