	I do not know if I understood the question but you can have a bunch of 
different websites with their own ip addresses in one apache server. 
That is usually done if they have their own unique certs AFAIK. I would 
imagine you can do fancier stuff too if you throw more servers at it, 
like have one external box that then forward the different requests to 
the proper web servers in your DMZ/private net.

	That said, it is rather silly the sonicwall cannot listen to more than 
one external IP. I mean, that is beyond trivial in your garden-variety 
Linux or Solaris or what have you. And AFAIK sonicwall is linux-based.

Can't it at least have rules based on external FQDNs?
