I have an active website on port 80. What I'm trying to do is get my test websites working for port 87 and 88 so I can type in my ip address then :87 or :88 to get to them. It just keeps timing out. What I did is my router does point those two ports to the computer. Then in apache conf, I changed my virtual host to <Virtual *.87>. That didn't work. Do I have to append the listening port. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Pls help. Thanks in advance for all the help.

You need to add those ports with the Listen directive:
Listen 80
Listen 87
Listen 88

I believe you can also add it in the <VirtualHost> section but this way will work fine.
