% Alternatively, if your computer has multiple network interfaces (or
% can be configured to pretend that it does), you can assign one IP

	How can you configure a machine to pretend it has more than
	one network interface?  Do you know if there's a standard
	way to do this in UNIX?

% address to abcd.com, assign another to xyz.com, and run a server which
% behaves differently depending on which IP address is used to contact
% it.  The important thing is that the IP addresses must be distinct,
% since an HTTP client doesn't try to tell the server what it thinks the
% server's name is.
% The server you use has to be aware of this arrangement as well, of
% course.  Patches are available for the NCSA server (and probably for
% CERN as well); Apache, an NCSA derivative, comes with this code
% integrated in to the main body (and we've even gotten around to
% documenting it).  See
%   http://www.hyperreal.com/apache/docs/virtual-host.html
% for details on how this works...
