    Listen to different IP address in URL?

      My AS (JBoss 4.0.3SP1) sits in a private network (192.168.0.x) behind a firewall; port 8080 forward to the AS.

      I can get to its web service from the outside using any name in the URL, like http://foo:8080/ , but not using the IP address of the firewall.

      (Of course foo must resolve to the IP address of the firewall, e.g. via an entry in /etc/hosts.)

      I guess the web server simply discards the request when the host part of the URL is an IP address, but not its own.

      Is there a way to turn this off, i.e. to accept any http request coming in, no matter what the host part in the URL is?
