I am using this config file to route all requests to a public echo service:

#user  nobody;
worker_processes  1;

events {
    worker_connections  1024;

http {
    include       mime.types;
    default_type  application/octet-stream;

    error_log error.log debug;

	upstream app_server {

    server {
        listen       80 default_server;
        server_name  localhost;

        proxy_http_version 1.1;
        proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
        proxy_set_header Connection '';
        proxy_cache_bypass $http_upgrade;
        proxy_pass_request_headers      on;

		location / {
#		  proxy_pass http://app_server/utils/echo-nocache.cgi/freg/;

As is, this works:

$ curl
GET /utils/echo-nocache.cgi/freg/ HTTP/1.1
User-Agent: curl/7.49.1
Accept: */*

But when I change the proxy_pass value to reference "app_server" as defined in the upstream directive, I get a 403:

$ curl
<title>403 Forbidden</title>
<p>You don't have permission to access /utils/echo-nocache.cgi/freg/
on this server.</p>

Am I misusing "upstream" or is this a bug?

I am getting similar behaviour running against the default nginx image on Docker Hub, using docker-machine and virtualbox to host this locally.

Resolution: invalid
Status: newclosed

This is what your upstream server returns. Note that using different name in the proxy_pass directive also implies using different Host in the request, see
