I have an apache http server(version 2.4.27) sitting in front of two wildfly 10 servers. The apache server acts as a load balancer between the two wildfly servers. I am posting the vitrual host configuration below. I have an issue with unwanted ips hitting my apache. Although they can not access my application( they get a 403 code), I still don't want them hitting my apache. Am I broadcasting and if so how can i disable this? I am using the advertisegroup directive with a custom multicast ip address. I have configured this ip in my wildfly domain.xml as well. I tried with serveradvertise off as well but that did not work. I think it is off by default. Not sure if I have enabled it by mistake. Please help.
