My root server runs a webserver (AOLserver) configured to listen to the public IP, a mail server (postfix) configured to listen to (look at main.cf, I don't remember the parameter) and sshd, listening to the public IP (look at sshd_config for ListenAddress. Uncomment and change from

That was all it took. A netstat -antu reveals if you've missed something.

My root server has a typical /etc/hosts file (nothing special), my vservers have two lines: localhost localhost.localdomain servername.tld
64.xx.xx.xx localhost localhost.localdomain servername.tld

(64.xx.xx.xx is the IP assigned to the vserver)

That seems to work. I took out the line entirely at one point, but that caused some problems. Defining localhost twice sounds weird but seems to work fine. Comments on why would be welcome. :)
