Have you configured name service for the virtual hosts? You have to tell the machine with the browser what IP address corresponds to each virtual host. In your case the IP address will be the same each time.
Do you have one or more domains registered for these hosts? In the long run, they'll need to be registered in the Domain Name Service. In the short term you can put entries in the /etc/hosts files on both the server and client to map from virtual hostnames to the shared IP address.
Add an entry in each machines /etc/hosts like this:
192.168.101.1 virtual1.example.com virtual2.example.com virtual3.example.com
Now any references to one of those hostnames will be pointed to the Apache server at 192.168.101.1. Because Apache's running named virtual hosting it pays attention to the host name in the URL and picks the corresponding virtual server.
If the client is running Windows, you can find the location of the hosts file here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hosts_%28file%29#Location_in_the_file_system).

here is my hosts file. now when i type amax.local it returns the result of my defaul-site(which is localhost).
192.168.0.120 amax.local mdp.local
127.0.1.1 maryon-desktop mmayor
# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
i want to access amax.local from other machines from the same network.
