Set Host Header on Existing SharePoint 2010 Site

TaBone asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have SharePoint Server 2010 running on a Windows Server2008 R2 box.  I am accessing the sites remotely through our ISA firewal using the Alternate Accessing Mapping name for Internetl.  Everything works except Datasheet View edits and visual charts in Excel Services.

I think it's because I never set the host header value for the web applications.

How do I set the host header value for an existing SharePoint 2010 site to match the alternate access mapping name?  the more detailed the instructions the better.
