You need a proxy IP for this. The server acts as client
as well. The request from will go to IP address
on port 4444. It is getting load balanced to the only existing real
server which is again The real server is getting a
request from now (its own IP address). It will try to
answer directly and therefore the return traffic is not getting
translated back again to The real server is talking to but the reply would come from - BOOM - not
working. There is no other solution then a proxy IP from my point of view.
