Thank you, that does sound like an interesting approach. The
application is maintain the multiple IP Addresses for the sites
though the sites actually share much code and data. I also attempted
using multiple jails all pointing to the same file system but was
naturally discouraged by the jail configuration to do so as this
seems to violate the concept. Seems wasteful of memory too. I will
try the divert method next using a single jail.
Thank you again for the reply.
