Default Accessing a site without a DNS record

Is there any way to access an ISPConfig website without having a DNS record pointing to it?

In other words I want to access the web-root of the site by using either the IP number of the ISPConfig server like this: http://xx.xxx.xxx.xxx/web17/ for example, or by using the name of the ISPConfig server, so for example http://www.myispconfigserver.com:81/www/web17/ or something similar to that.

Basically I am moving an ISPConfig installation from one server to another, and I want to test out the sites on the new server before I change the DNS record.

Can that be done? (Sorry, should add that this is Apache/Ubuntu)

This is not possible as ISPConfig configures name-based vhosts.
But you can modify the hosts file of the client computer: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/sho...s+file+windows
