Thanks Scott! You just pointed me in the right direction. I had been looking at Apache and load balancer setup. But the problem was caused by one of the redirection pages that includes the port number.  Thanks so much!

Then I don't know what you're virtualizing here, but I don't know any way for that to happen unless there's something different about the way you're accessing the server in those two cases.

Since the port is involved, you must be virtualizing the port and not doing so properly somewhere.
