    DNS can only forward the packets to your IIS server, with the host header of

    If your server only has a binding for, then all packets will be dropped.

    Can you modify your server with a valid binding? If not, ask your clients to set up their reverse proxy (not merely DNS) to forward packets, as reverse proxies are capable of not only passing on packets, but also modify their host headers.
