Subject Re: [users@httpd] Proxying and load balancing
Date Thu, 16 Feb 2006 21:05:23 GMT
Check out the proxyHost and proxyPort XML attributes on this page:

http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/config/http.html

Basically, you need to set these to your load balancer. Then clients
will always go through the load balancer.
