It’s actually an easy fix. The appropriate Knowledge Base article is “FIX: IP address is revealed in the content-location field in the TCP header in IIS 6.0

1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK to open a command prompt.
2. Change to the folder where the Adsutil.vbs tool is located. By default, this folder is the following:
3. Type the following command, where x is your site identifier and hostname is the alternate host name that you want to use:
cscript adsutil.vbs set w3svc/x/SetHostName hostname

cscript adsutil.vbs set w3svc/70762098/SetHostName

How to find the your site identifier ???
In IIS 5 or 6, view the properties of the website and in the Web Site tab, click on the Properties button for the logging. At the bottom of the Extended Logging Properties window is the Log file name. It will be something like this: W3SVCXXXXX\exyymmdd.log.
XXXXX is your site identifier .
