I'm having two Servlets/JSPs reside in two different servers. e.g. Servlet1 resides in 100.0.0.001 & Servlet2 resides in 100.0.0.002
After Servlet1 is being redirected to Servlet2, is there a way in Servlet2 to get Servlet1's server address?
Thanks a million!

Did you check the output of Request.getRemoteHost() & getRemoteAddr() methods? If these methods doesn't return the server1 IP address then you can query for HTTP header fields "Referer" & "Via". Even if these fields doesn't work then you have to add a field to the request from server1 before forwarding to the server2.
