server, which they can't. What you are refering to is an internal
redirect, where Apache finds that for some reason it needs to chnage
to a different (but still local) URL.
You're config setting only tells Apache to respond with a URL
minus any QUERY_STRING info. When clients receive a redirect
response, they cannot re-attach the QUERY_STRING because they can't
assume the QUERY_STRING info is still relevant... they don't know what
generated the redirect.
You can write a script on the first server which creates the
necessary URL for the second server (including the QUERY_STRING), then
send that location to the client.
This will reduce the load on your main server, but it still requires it
to run a small script.
