The web server IP address management for multi-homing has been simplified in 4D 6.7. A new pop up menu on the "Web Server I" tab of the Database Properties dialog automatically lists all available IP addresses on the machine. This menu also contains the option ALL (selected by default). When this option is selected, the server answers on all available IP addresses.

If you want the server to respond only to queries sent to a specific IP address, simply select that address in the pop up menu.
