Ok, I am trying to show that I can run 2 different
websites off the same machine and server.  
However, when I use the following configuration,
I will only get the virtual host site.

NameVirtualHost 131.204.136.14
<VirtualHost  131.204.136.14>
    ServerAdmin webmaster@vetmed.auburn.edu
    DocumentRoot /opt/local/wwwroot/httpdocs
    ServerName www.vetmed.auburn.edu
    ErrorLog /opt/local/wwwroot/logs/error.log
    CustomLog /opt/local/wwwroot/logs/error common
/VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost 131.204.136.14>
    ServerAdmin webmaster@vetmed.auburn.edu
    DocumentRoot /opt/local/wwwroot/virtual
    ServerName virtual.vetmed.auburn.edu
    ErrorLog /opt/local/wwwroot/logs/virtual.log
  CustomLog /opt/local/wwwroot/logs/virtual common
</VirtualHost>
 Is there a problem with me setting these to the
default port?  I've added virtual to our DNS so it
points at the server machine.  Not that it matters,
but I thought I would mention it.

If I set the VirtualHostName to 131.204.136.14:8000, port 80 no longer responds.
Same when I add Listen 8000, I thought I could
have the server listen to multiple ports at the
same time? I had Bind set to *.

What am I doing wrong?

First, if I were you, I would check why the query gives two responses:
alchemy:/home/mapc% host www.vetmed.auburn.edu
www.vetmed.auburn.edu is a nickname for franklin.vetmed.auburn.edu
franklin.vetmed.auburn.edu has address 131.204.136.14
franklin.vetmed.auburn.edu has address 131.204.136.14

Looking at your zone file, I haven't seen a problem, that might indicate that either I'm tired or your dns server software does it.

Secondly,
you must be sure that you call your server by the complete name, e.g.
in netscape:
http://www.vetmed.auburn.edu
giving the name www.vetmed is not enough.
if you wish to have it as an option, add in the first virtualhost
ServerAlias www www.vetmed
or similar.
Bind address is good for other things, not in your case, comment it out.
And, as funy as it is, check that:
/opt/local/wwwroot/virtual
is not the same as:
/opt/local/wwwroot/httpdocs

Dealing with ports isn't needed as well.

mpac,

Thanks for the fast response but I think you may
have copy and pasted incorrtly because they
appear to be the same lines, unless I am tired :-)

>                      franklin.vetmed.auburn.edu has address 131.204.136.14

Also, I have been using http://www.vetmed.auburn.edu and
http://virtual.vetmed.auburn.edu when I try and
get to the sights.

Could you tell me again what is giving two different responses?

yes. running `host' command gives the answer twice.
I have no idea why though.
So.. perhaps you're missing something since it works for me :)

I lied.  When I use the above settings, http://www.vetmed.auburn.edu
breaks!  I get an error telling me the server is not responding.  However,
if I put in http://virtual.vetmed.auburn.edu, I get the right page :-?
