The default httpd.conf contains a: Listen 80 directive, which will cause apache to bind to all available interfaces and listen on port 80. You probably need to change that. In fact, I believe that 'Listen' is nowadays preferred to the 'BindAddress' and 'Port' combo and that 'BindAddress' and 'Port' have been phased out in apache 2.x Cheers, Matthew -- Dr Matthew J Seaman MA, D.Phil. 26 The Paddocks Savill Way PGP: http://www.infracaninophile.co.uk/pgpkey Marlow Tel: +44 1628 476614 Bucks., SL7 1TH UK
