Hello Krist,

Thanks for your response.

After correcting application configuration, Load balancing is working fine.

The server is doing exactly what you ask it to do. When you ask it to
"redirect" to another server it will respond to client requests by
telling the client to go get the content somewhere else. As a result
the browser then makes a new request and the URL in the address bar
If you want to hide the backend tomcat server what you need to do is:
a) proxy requests, not redirect them.
b) configure the tomcat server itself not to use its own URL, but that
of the proxy whenever generating a redirect.
