Removing host header for a current web app
When creating a web application, I specified the host header. I also set the host header on the IIS site from properties in the IIS management console. Now, I would like to get rid of the host header for this web app and use the raw URL to access it... i.e., http://<server_name>:<port> I was able to get rid of the host header information in the IIS properties but I do not know how to disassociate it from the SharePoint end. If I type in the http://<server_name>:<port>, it is redirecting me to the http://<host-header> in the browser which I want to prevent from happening. I tried looking the central admin to see if I could do that but I do not see a place where I can remove it. Any suggestions/pointers! Thanks!
