Nope. I tried in Konqueror and Mozilla (used Galeon before) and
Konqueror shows the site it's suppose to - and Mozilla shows the "Seeing
this website instead of the page you expected?" page.

I decided to sniff (using ethereal), to see what the difference was (as
I suspect some language options to be the cause).

I found the reason. Mozilla (and Galeon) uses the IPv6 Address to go to
apache - and as my VirtualHosts all use my IPv4 address there's no
virtualhost that answers.

Konqueor uses IPv4 and thus gets what it's suppose to.

Any tips, on how I can set up my VirtualHosts so they answer on both
IPv4 and IPv6?

Currently I have:

<VirtualHost> (my default vhost - for everything that is
not using a servername given in other virtual hosts)

.. (same VirtualHost - just *.domains or servernames)
which all works fine.

Thanks for your help.
