To your server port 80 is normal; and to your server port 8081 is normal.

This will include all of the connections from the world to your :80
server, plus all of the connections from your server to your :8081 server.

(I'm assuming that you proxy_pass to your_ip:8081.)

You haven't shown that configuration yet.

Can you show the configuration of the location{} where you proxy_pass? You
will want to make sure that the "proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;"
line is active there -- either because it is in that location, or because
it is inherited into it.
