There could be several reasons why enabling NLB proxy protocol leads to a bad request error when using the Nginx ingress controller. Here are some possible causes and solutions:

  1. Protocol mismatch: If the NLB proxy protocol is enabled, but the Nginx ingress controller is configured to use HTTP instead of TCP or HTTPS, this could cause a protocol mismatch error. To resolve this issue, ensure that the Nginx ingress controller is configured to match the protocol used by the NLB proxy protocol.

  2. Invalid or missing header: The NLB proxy protocol includes specific headers that the Nginx ingress controller must recognize and respond to correctly. If these headers are invalid, missing, or not configured correctly, this could cause a bad request error. Ensure that the headers are configured correctly and that the Nginx ingress controller is configured to recognize them.

  3. Network issues: Sometimes, network issues or misconfigurations can cause problems with the NLB proxy protocol or the Nginx ingress controller. Check your network settings, firewalls, and security groups to ensure that traffic is flowing correctly and that there are no blocking issues.

  4. Incompatible versions: If the NLB proxy protocol or the Nginx ingress controller is running an incompatible version, this could cause problems. Ensure that both are running the latest compatible versions and that they are configured to work together.

  5. Load balancing issues: The NLB proxy protocol is used for load balancing, so problems with the load balancer could cause issues with the Nginx ingress controller. Check your load balancer settings and ensure that they are configured correctly.

In summary, enabling NLB proxy protocol can cause bad request errors when using the Nginx ingress controller. To resolve these issues, ensure that the Nginx ingress controller is configured correctly to match the NLB proxy protocol, that the headers are set up correctly, and that network and load balancing issues are ruled out.
