It seems httpd attempts to establish TCP connections to registered
workers. This won't work if a worker has a private IP address, e.g.
Can't httpd reuse *incoming* TCP connections from workers to *send*
messages to them ? This would require httpd to keep incoming connections
from workers open.
The scenario is as follows:
* httpd runs on a public IP
* We have a worker W which runs on a private IP, e.g.
192.168.1.5:8009 is its AJP connector
* W registers with httpd under 192.168.1.5:8009, this works
* Now someone tries to access a webapp
* Say httpd picks W
* Now httpd attempts to connect to 192.168.1.5:8009, and this fails
The question is why does httpd not reuse the TCP connection established
by W to httpd to send the AJP request back to W ?
