Then why're you saying that Apache isn't doing it's job properly? 
Obviously Apache is answering requests from other machines.

Does Apache's error logs (wich you hav, of course, allready checked) 
list any failed requests? Do they list *any* requests from machines 
outside your local networks?

Apache doesn't know what an Intranet is. It only knows about HTTP 
requests/replies, local filesystem and interned addresses (IP and 
domain). It cannot automatically see the diffrerence between adresses 
on your local network and adresses outside it.

You can, however, manually limit Apache to not serve requests from 
any adress.

Odd server name. :-/ With that name, it's good that you have 
UseCanonicalName off. But you'll still have problems with old 
HTTP/1.0 browsers if any such tries to use the site.

I did not, however, see any IP address based limiting in that conf, 
so you Apache should answer requests it receives disregarding where 
they originates. Note: requests it receives.
