Hi there @Yehtut,

One way to achieve that is to use a reverse proxy in front of Tomcat.

You can follow the steps on how to do that here:

In this DigitalOcean article, we are going to see set up Apache on Ubuntu 13 and use it as a reverse-proxy to welcome incoming connections and redirect them to application server(s) running on the same network. For this purpose, we are going to use and work with the mod_proxy extension and several other related Apache modules.
