Now that you have identified the problem, the possibilities for
are more obvious
For example, as an alternative to what you have already working, you
could note that you have the following line in your config:
proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
which sends the Host: header to the backend with the value of the
$http_host variable, which is the content of the incoming Host: header
(and may be empty).
If your backend requires that this always be “sample.com”, then you
could instead use
proxy_set_header Host sample.com;
or possibly something like $server_name that has the same value.
default_server with specific IP when accessed by a IP address like
http://192.168.1.1/, it will not have a ‘host’, thus when passed to the app
in the tomcat, it will not hit the right virtual host there, initially I was
thinking, probably nginx can insert the ‘host’ before proxy to tomcat to
make it work.
Strictly, it might have no Host, or it might have a Host of
192.168.1.1. Either way, it is not what your tomcat expects (unless it
is also the default server for connections to this address).
And getting nginx to insert the Host header you want is one way to
