Simplest means of correcting this would be to add your static IP (if
one existed) for your server box on the network to your /etc/hosts file
and then change Servname to match bsd-box.
The more complex (but probably better means), would be to setup a
DNS server (look up bind9 for this) and then just make sure that
Servname matches your machine's DNS assigned hostname.

1. that this is a problem with DNS, edit /etc/hosts
I've got this line in /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.home.net bsd-box.home.net bsd-box
2. Apache is listening to devices that don't exist - I don't know how to
explore that suggestion.
3. If your host doesn't have a registered DNS name, enter its IP address in
I have this line in httpd.conf
