Thanks for responding, Michael!

I did at one time have a LinkSys unit up front but it could only handle one address so I removed
it as something having no real application in my server environment, which is Mandrake Linux
9.1 with Apache2.0.47 for the record.

If I undersatnd your suggestion correctly, by assigning a unique port to the internal IP masqueraded
address for aach division, the problem of getting around secure traffic being defaulted by
Apache to the first virtual host it knows about is successfully dealt with.

Am I correct in this?

If so, I'm willing to give it a try on Saturday.

Thanks again for your support ....
