    "reach its public ip"? is the *private* ip, isn't it?

    what packets does the *client* see? IOW, what goes *out* from the
    outside interface? the packet headers are obviously translated fine,
    but maybe the server sends it its IP in the data?

    i would think so.

    doesn't look like an apache problem. either tomcat or the java app.
