I use the latest mod_frontpage module with Apache 1.3.31...

I haven't tested whether or not it binds to *:80 or not when I specify an IP.

How are you specifying the IP in the conf file ? Are you just using Listen ?

I agree.

It definately should.

Nor do I.

Yes.  When I configured Apache to only listen on 1 IP address, sockstat then
showed it listening on that address in addition to *:80.  The exact same
config changes on a machine without fp installed resulted in the expected

Now, I haven't been idle since I made that first post ... It seems there are
two frontpage ports, apache_fp and mod_frontpage. I've got apache_fp installed.

Anyone using mod_frontpage that can say whether it's better or worse?
