Have you added the second ip to your /etc/hosts file on the linux box?
Here is my /etc/hosts from a router (internal).

# The loopback device. It should always be available.
# localhost
# Your first IP interface (if you are connected to any kind of network)
# jhammer6.jhammer.org jhammer6

# Your second IP interface (normally for routers only)
