Subject RE: [users@httpd] Using VirtualHost on local machine only works with active internet connection
Date Sat, 10 May 2003 15:56:57 GMT
Just disable the auto-dialing in IE and tell IE that you connect to the
Internet using LAN, whenever you want to connect to the Internet you'd have
to manually launch the dialer.

All the best,
