What happened when you tried it?

A quick test here of "nc -l 9005", plus nginx.conf with

==
stream {
server {
listen 9001;
proxy_pass 127.0.0.3:9005;
}
}
==

and "tcpdump -nn -i any -X -s 0 port 9005 or port 9001", seems to show
that "nc localhost 9001" leads to a tcp handshake involving port 9001
(from the client to nginx) and a tcp handshake involving port 9005
(from nginx to the upstream).

Do you have a specific test case that shows this problem?

==
stream {
server {
listen 9001;
proxy_pass 127.0.0.3:22;
}
}
==

and "ssh -v -p 9001 localhost" would seem to indicate that it Just Works.

Perhaps my testing is wrong?
