After upgrading plex to v 1.0 i found that existing reverse proxy on nginx broke.<br> started playing around and fixed it using following header need to be set.

In your nginx.

        proxy_set_header   X-Real-IP        $remote_addr;
        proxy_set_header   X-Forwarded-For  $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
        proxy_max_temp_file_size 0;
        proxy_set_header X-Plex-Client-Identifier $http_x_plex_client_identifier;
        proxy_set_header X-Plex-Device $http_x_plex_device;
        proxy_set_header X-Plex-Device-Name $http_x_plex_device_name;
        proxy_set_header X-Plex-Platform $http_x_plex_platform;
        proxy_set_header X-Plex-Platform-Version $http_x_plex_platform_version;
        proxy_set_header X-Plex-Product $http_x_plex_product;
        proxy_set_header X-Plex-Token $http_x_plex_token;
        proxy_set_header X-Plex-Version $http_x_plex_version;
        proxy_set_header X-Plex-Nocache $http_x_plex_nocache;
        proxy_set_header X-Plex-Provides $http_x_plex_provides;
        proxy_set_header X-Plex-Device-Vendor $http_x_plex_device_vendor;
        proxy_set_header X-Plex-Model $http_x_plex_model;

On top of that this might help if it keep asking you for the login.<br> in your /var/lib/plex/Plex\ Media\ Server/Preferences.xml add following.

allowedNetworks="" disableRemoteSecurity="1"

NOTE : Make sure you do authentication by another mean because it might open up your plex to world.
