Do you remember this problem earlier with IIS sending the server’s private address for a request made for a non host-header site in its headers? You were setting UseHostName or SetHostName property in the metabase to stop the server sending the private IP address. This KB article had the hotfix details, and you need to follow the more information section to be able to stop the server sending.

appcmd.exe set config –section:system.webServer/serverRuntime /alternateHostName:“YourServerName” /commit:apphost
