Test domain wordpress layout before transfer via dedicated IP address

    I posted this as a response, should have posted it as a new thread. My bad....
    I am not seeing a way to view a site via the dedicated ip address of the account/domain other than the site viewer which will not show the css or images of a default wordpress install prior to the domain transfer. Is there a way to modify the vhost file from /var/www/vhosts/domain.com/conf/httpd.include and change the following :80
    <VirtualHost 67.225.xxx.xxx:80>
    ServerName domain.com:80
    to the same without the :80 and then distill the file to retain the changes?

    Will this allow the client to see the domain via the ip address to test the layout of the site before the domain transfer?

    When I go to the ip address now (without the :80) all I see is

    Bad Request

    Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.
    Apache/2.2.0 (Fedora) Server at 67.225.xxx.xx Port 80

    When I use the :80 I see the site but without the formatting (css or images)

    This is a new setup of plesk for linux.

    Please advise and thanks in advance.
