running apache on a firewall system

if you are running Apache on a firewall system, perhaps to display a web front end for firewall configuration, how would you make sure that it is accessible only from inside the local network?

I believe you can set the interface that apache listens on in httpd.conf file. For example:

# Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to 
# prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses (
In the above example it would set apache to listen on port 80. This makes the assumption that is your inside interface.
