Add HTTP headers to Wowza's HTTP responses

We’ve got Wowza setup to serve live stream and archive HLS via HTTP. Pretty standard setup.

We need to add some HTTP headers (not M3U8 headers) to Wowza’s HTTP responses. Not critical for the actual HLS video data, but would like the headers included in any manifest, playlist, and ‘random URL’ responses.

By ‘random URL’ I mean if you go to a random URL on the server, as below, you just get a Wowza version number page.

For ease of configuration, I’d like to add these headers via a configuration file, not via any Java add-in.

Has anyone had any experience doing this?

Looking into this as well as Qualys scan are reporting vulnerabilities on ports 8086 and 1935. How do I place HTTP Headers for these ports?
