I'm running Apache on a firewall box (I know, bad, bad, but I don't have another machine) and so to be as paranoid as possible, I'd like it to NOT send out 404 messages. If someone probes my box with a generic port 80 request for say, index.html (which does not exist) instead of the exact name of one of my html files, Apache should not respond in any way. I've spent some time digging through the httpd.conf file, but the closest I can find is an option to make your own message rather than Apache's generic 404 message. I'd like no message at all.
