If I want this to work on what would be my header parameter for the cookies to be proper?

I want to do the same thing but haven't been able to figure out the correct settings. Any help would be appreciated!

AFAIK you can't do this on subdomains anyways because proxmox cookies will get confused. It didn't even work if proxmox are on different ports (8006, 8007 for example). When logged into one proxmox, other session gets destroyed.

Also as of proxmox5 the noVNC proxying via nginx is broken. It works randomly on multiple connection retries.

To prevent hangup of screen on novnc i suggest to add :

client_max_body_size 10240M;
client_body_buffer_size 4m;
proxy_connect_timeout 7d;
proxy_send_timeout 7d;
proxy_read_timeout 7d;
proxy_cache off;
