We had some issues with the way the splunk web server handled our internally signed SSL certs so we setup nginx to handle the ssl and just proxy requests to the local splunk server. The problem is that the links still show port 8000 which means we click the link, remove the port, and then we get to the desired page (nginx does a URL rewrite to add the s to http).
Is there a way to drop the port number from the links that are generated without changing the port the web server runs on? Is there another way to accomplish this goal?
Yep, that worked.
A useless side note: I thought it would have created the link host:80:8000 which apparently would have worked anyways (in FF, but not safari)
