Only listen to requests from the local host

I actually have 2 parts to this question:

1.  How can you configure apache to only listen to requests on port 80 coming from the local host and not from anywhere else?  Everyone else should be connecting to 443.

2.  I've been reading the documentation on the Apache web site about redirection.  Can someone bypass redirection?  If so, can this be done only by not using regular expressions with the Redirect Directive?
