Multiple SSL certificates on Apache using multiple public IPs - not working

view story

http://serverfault.com – I need configure multiple SSL certificates on a single Apache server. I already know that I need multiple external IP addresses as I cannot use SNI (only running Apache 2.2.3 on this server). I assumed that I had everything configured correctly, unfortunately things are not working as they should (or maybe I should say, as I expected them to work)... In my httpd.conf I have: NameVirtualHost *:80 NameVirtualHost *:443 Lets say my public IP is and my private IP is When I use the public IP in my vhost my default website is being shown instead the one defined in my vho (HowTos)
