Not sure of what version of Apache we were running, but when we tried
virtual webs on one IP it worked... just that when the page was accessed,
the name of the virtual domain that was configged first would appear in the
address line.
The same thing had happened using several nt www servers.

That may have been fixed since then. That is why i used the word 'truly'.

I would love for anyone to share info with me on how to set-up virtual webs
on iis3.0 with one ip.
