It sounds like N6 is not recognizing name-based virtual hosting, which is 
an HTTP/1.1 thing if I remember correctly, where the browser should sent 
the domain it's requesting in the request, and the server will direct it to 
the right place based on that.

If N6 isn't sending the host name in the request, then your server doesn't 
know which domain is being requested.

Check your N6 setup to see if you're somehow forcing HTTP/1.0 only.
