Linux 2.2.13 RedHat 6.1 Apache 1.3.9 from RedHat rpm
I have 1 A name and 2 CNAME's for my box. Internally the box is named as a node in a subdomain
from one of the CNAME's.
Note that www.fools-errant.com actually resolves someplace else. However, removing that virtual
host and restarting changed nothing.

I set up name virtual hosts in the config file. The config file is the vanilla file supplied
by RedHat, I added:


ServerAdmin webmaster@www.hacksaw.org
DocumentRoot /home/httpd/html/hacksaw
ServerName hacksaw.org
ServerAlias *.hacksaw.org
ErrorLog logs/error-log.hacksaw.org
TransferLog logs/access-log.hacksaw.org

ServerAdmin webmaster@www.privatecircus.com
DocumentRoot /home/httpd/html/privatecircus
ServerName privatecircus.com
ServerAlias *.privatecircus.org
ErrorLog logs/error-log.privatecircus.org
TransferLog logs/access-log.privatecircus.org

ServerAdmin webmaster@www.fools-errant.com
DocumentRoot /home/httpd/html/fools-errant
ServerName fools-errant.com
ServerAlias *.fools-errant.com
ErrorLog logs/error-log.fools-errant.com
TransferLog logs/access-log.fools-errant.com

I have only the one httpd.conf. The output from the -S option

hacksaw > httpd -S
VirtualHost configuration:        is a NameVirtualHost
                       default server hacksaw.org (/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:342)
                       port 80 namevhost hacksaw.org (/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:342)
                       port 80 namevhost privatecircus.com (/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:351)
                       port 80 namevhost fools-errant.com (/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:360)

The browser I am checking it with is Netscape 4.7 and lynx 2.8.1rel.2. The lynx is running
on a host on a different network.

Running strace on the httpd -X run reveals the browser is send a well formed Host: header,
(i.e. "Host: www.hacksaw.org")

My net connection is an SDSL line, with the router doing NAT. No one else is running a web
server on my network, I'm running just apache on one box.
