Your web- or application server listens on port 8100. It knows about this
and produces links in the HTML code that link directly to its content. You
have to look at how you configure either your application server or the
application that runs on top of it to produce links that won't contain the
:8100 part. This is not really relevant for Varnish and Varnish can't do
anything about it.
