Hello,

Is it necessary to set the SetHostName property in IIS 6.0 if Windows Service Pack 1 has been installed?  I'm wondering if the service pack resolves the issue with the IP Address being revealed in the TCP header for GET requests.

Thanks.

Yes.

I believe the fix is included in SP1 but all the fix does is to enable the SetHostName property - it doesn't set it automatically.
