When you say that http://x.x.x.x "gives" http://myhost/index.jps, do you
mean it simply serves that content, or do you mean that it redirects to that
new location (causing the URL bar in your browser to change)?

My best guess at this point is that your browsers are caching some older
version of your site before you changed the configuration.  Try from a
computer you have never used before.

Just to clarify, DirectoryIndex is the proper method to set the default file
that will be served when a directory is requested.
