I'm slightly confused about setting up virtual servers - ideally I would like to have a single IP address and have traffic sent to different virtual servers based on the host name, in the same manner as Apache virtual hosts.

The first thing I need to get clear is - can 2 virtual servers share the same http-listener and have the traffic go to the appropriate virtual server based on the host name? .. or do I need to create a separate http-listener on a different port for each virtual server?

The manual seems to suggest a separate listener is required for each virtual server but I have seen blog posts around that suggest the contrary.
