This isn't so much a "how do I do this" question, as a "what is going on" question.  I have a web server with 8 IP addresses, from 70.38.3.24 to 70.38.3.31.  I've assigned address 70.38.3.25 to www.cerebrum.ca.

I can see www.cerebrum.ca in any browser, but when I type http://70.38.3.25, all I see is the welcome page (iisstart.htm) for IIS which appears to be the default web site for the server.

Why is this happening?  Shouldn't I be able to type the IP address and get the same result as typing in the URL?
