So when we are trying develop some particular portal, when you are looking with loop-back IP, connecting the backend by a loop-back IP, the response is coming by an actual IP - that's the portal design. Because it is redirecting multiple URLs, the portal designed like in such a way like it will take your input and redirect your many multiple URLs with the connection and respond back to your browser, but the browser always it comes back with the actual IP, not the loop-back IP. In this case, the CA PAM is working well for us.
