I don't have a router because I have a static IP number the 67.XX
I got three nics on my box.
eth1 is the one connected to the modem that's how I can browse the
outside world.

now, on the same box I run apache and if I make
apache listen to 67.xx... i can see apache from the outside world,
meaning my friends can see my server.

what I want to do is make an alias for the with a 192.168.1.x
and make apache listen to the 192.168.1.x number i choose.
so that when my friends point to the 67.x.x ip number, they get redirected to 
the 192.168.1.x and apache answers back. 

right now this doesn't work, it seems like I am missing somehting with
ip aliasing. ofcourse i can get a router and give that router
the 67.x.x.x number then port forward port 80 to the 192.168. and apache will
be seen from the outside world, I am trying t osee if I 
can get away with getting a router for this purpose.

eth1 is the nic connected to the 67.x.x..x
my alias is eth1:1, I got 3 nics on the box but the other nics are for 
something else.  Idon't have problem browsing outside, or being seen
as long as I use the 67.x, but I just wanted to see if I can
forward 67.x to the 192.x
that's all.
