I am using a Windows server running IIS within a domain network. When accessing the website hosted on the server, i able to open the correct page. Refreshing the page within a few seconds shows a web page from a Apache webserver running on a linux machine(with same ip address).
In short, the same IP address connects to different servers within a matter of seconds intermittently. How is this possible? My stream of thoughts so far: - DNS resolves the url to same ip address correctly, but the machine corresponding to the IP address is switching. Is it possible to have two machines with same IP address on a network? - The call to one server could automatically redirect to another url. I used Curl to check redirects. But, there aren't any.
I am trying to think of any other diagnostics i could run to determine the root cause.
Any thoughts/suggestions would be helpful. Questions are most welcome!
