Redirect traffic?

Warning, redirect is not place to redirect traffic from your non-preferred domain. your website does not directs www.abc.com and abc.com to the same URL.

but page are open same in both case, so why it’s say does not direct to same url? can you explain how it’s solve?

You don’t say where you’re seeing this message.

You should choose to use either example.com or www.example.com as the address for your site, and then redirect the other. So if you decide to use the non-www. version, anybody typing www.example.com will be redirected to example.com - that’s the URL which will show in the address bar of their browser.

You can redirect www to non www or vice versa, whichever is your preference, using .htaccess if you are using Apache. There is a tutorial here.

Well, if you have your website redirecting as you want it, it suggests this tool is not working as it ought, and it is probably worth using another tool.

Yes, a lot of those “tools” look a bit sketchy.

In this case I imagine it simply scrapes the page looking for a meta refresh and not any server or server-side redirects

That’s not what I’m seeing. If a page is redirected, then the URL in the browser address bar will update to show the new URL. If I enter www.rangkalaglass.com in my browser, I’m taken to that exact URL, with the www. If I enter rangkalaglass.com, then I’m taken to that exact URL, without the www.

In other words, there are two different ways to reach the same page. (That will be true for every page on the site.) This is not considered good practice. You should choose one version and redirect the other version. You should also set your preferred version in Google Search Console.
