Apache 2.2.4 on Windows 2000

You will need to toggle win32disableacceptex http://httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/mod/mpm_winnt.html#win32disableacceptex in order for httpd to see addresses (in version 2.2.4 only, IP addresses were reported as, the actual bug only affected windows 2000 and not XP, and is resolved for 2.2.5).
