Thanks for all your help. In the end I fixed the problem with the "sledge
hammer" approach by having a range of IP addresses set up in the firewall.

However, other more subtle solutions suggested by people much clever than me

1. using the "depreacated" option in ifconfigure
2. Add a route statement for the specific network that is blocked pointing
packets out bge13.
3. Edit the Listen option in http.conf
4. Use the UseCononical in http.conf ( below)
5. swapping /etc/hostname.bge0 and /etc/hostname.bge0:1

Thanks for all your help.I was knocked out by getting so many replies.

	Well I think as long as you use UseCanonical Yes in the
httpd.conf and have a hostname associated with bge0:1 and the ServerName
is thathostname it should work fine.
