[winswitch] Properly setting XPRA HTML5

I am running several instances of XPRA servers each listening to certain display number on a remote Ubuntu machine.
Each instance is binding to different TCP port in the range of 1000 to 1050.When I connect using web-browser on my local laptop to the same-IP-address:different-ports, I can see the graphics being streamed on these different display numbers.

Now, I dont really want to server any other webpages. I just want to see XPRA traffic on web browser on the client side -- nothing else. In fact, I would prefer to stop/filter any request to access for non-xpra traffic. Do you have any reccomendation on how to best set it up? 

Also what is the best choice for me to make it as secure and as authenticated as possible? Specifically, which option flags should I use while starting the server?

Considering my application (i.e. only xpra-traffic and no other web applications being served) , do you see any pro/cons of using a standard web-server (such as apache) instead of the server that comes with web-sockify. Either from security point of view or any other?

Thanks, greatly appreciate any pointers or advice.
