Something -- local hosts file, DNS, NIS -- needs to map a "name" like
"topdog" to an IP address. If you change the IP of the host for those virtual
servers, that mapping has to change too.

So, from a command prompt
prompt% telnet 80
Host: topdog

(that's two returns) -- what comes back? If it's different than what you
see when you put "topdog" into your browser address bar, then yes,
you should revisit your network reconfiguration :-)
