The host-ip-address must be the IP address of the WWW server that cachemgr.cgi
runs on (as Richard said), _not_ the computer your web browser runs on.

I.e. if the URL you use to access the cache manager is, then host-ip-number must be the ip number
of (regardless of what computer your web browser is on).
