Environment:

A Enterprise Archive (EAR) application deployed to a Cluster or a Managed Server in a WebLogic Domain. A WebApp is embedded within this EAR. This EAR is targeted to Managed Server but the WebApp (sub-module of this EAR) is targeted to a Virtual Host. The Virtual Host, configured to listen only to a private Network Channel.

Problem:

Irrespective of WebApp is targeted only to Virtual Host, but it is still accessible/reachable to Managed Server's default channel (i.e Managed Server's URL).

How to limit the access of the WebApp only to the configured the private channel of the Virtual Host ?
