|There are a lot of nice configuring options of HTTP server, for example where
the different paths of contents can be assigned to different sitenames
(Configuring the services/Sites). For example connecting to localhost results
in the configuration webpage (admin page), while in theory connecting to the
URL of my computer results in the configured webpage. Now this is where i am
lost, because i don't know how to configure the server to see
k:\servers\index.html when i connect from outside (it says something about
file:/.../, but the syntax isn't clear), especially i have no idea how i can
see it connecting from my own computer (since it's localhost, thus goes to
configuration page, alias admin page). Probably the solution is trivial, just
can't figure it out. The hint at 'Site root path' could be more detailed a bit
maybe, not sure.

|The name of the site is sent by the browser, and is used to decide mainly
the root and the style of the viewed site.
The IP of the client cannot be used at that level in order to route to
different pages (the client IP is used by the configuration system only
in the users rights checking stage).
On the other hand, if the requested page is in .page format, then it is
possible to check the client IP within the dynamic page, and execute
different subpages accordingly.
