Hi Boris,

Sorry for a bit late answer, I was fully occupied with recent work on my 
web framework.

It is not so simple. If you put '*' in ip part that means only that your 
  HTTPServer will listen on all ports, but you need to add '*' to a host 
part of SiteIdentifier too, so that the HTTPServer will resolve whatever 
broswer sends in a Host: header. If you do that, than you must be sure 
that there is ony one Site and that you cannot add any more Site 
anymore. So, it is doable but in current Swazoo architecture it must be 
done carefully. Just putting a '*' there and there is not enough.

On the other side I just don't understand why you can't solve your 
problem more cleanly with aliases, as I shown to Andrés? Start Swazoo on 
localhost, then add alias to any ip on your machine you want.
