Right, sorry ... I was a little vague on where I was going with this. Let me
try again.

Well, the way I see it based on what I I've read elsewhere, one solution
would be to have CYGwin detect that the WAN IP has changed. I'm not sure if
that's possible or not. I use to get a dynamic DNS, if that
helps. I suppose I could write a little program, but I hate to re-invent the
wheel. So far, it seems not to be an Apache configuration issue, but I'm
still looking into that too.
