How servlet or container knows which browser/client to send response back.

Is IP used to determine client who made request, if so what if my machine in on local network. In that case many machines which are in local network will have same IP for outside world.

Can anyone please explain mechanism with sufficient information.

You're talking about a too big topic, not related to servlets, but to the HTTP protocol.
