Subject Re: multiple virtual hosts and ssl certificates

Peter is correct - I was just being a bit lazy in my answer...

The ssl connection is setup BEFORE any 'hostname' information is  
passed over the link, and therefore the server would not know 'which'  
virtual hostname's ssl certificate to use.

Therefore - 1 certificate per IP Address/ Port combination.
