Cannot connect to XenApp Web by IP Address

I have a Citrix XenApp 5 server on my network that is used by local/intranet users only.

Users can get to the XenApp Server's login page by name http://webapps.domain.com

The IIS Instance is named webapps.domain.com and the IP Address that is bound to the IIS instance is 192.168.1.226. Everything operates on port 80.

I need for certain users to access the http://webapps.domain.com by IP Address and not by name, and when users try to access the XenApp Server's login page by IP Address which is http://192.168.1.226 they recieve an HTTP 404 Error stating that the web page cannot be found.

I cannot even access the XenApp Server by IP Address at http://192.168.1.226 from the XenApp Server itself. If I am logged into the XenApp server with a domain administrator account, and I type in http://192.168.1.226 I recieve an HTTP 404 Error stating that the web page cannot be found.

This is truly perposterous. I even tried accessing the site from the XenApp that is hosting the IIS Site itself via http://192.168.1.226/Citrix/XenApp/auth/login.aspx and I still get the same
"HTTP 404 Error The Web Page Cannot Be found"

Anyone know what I need to zoom in on in order to allow this XenApp site be accessed by both name and IP Address?

Just as a test, I created a new IIS website named test.domain.com, and did not attach Citrix XenApp to it in anyway, and gave it the next IP Address thats free which is 192.168.1.227

Then if I try to test acces to that new test IIS site by both name and IP, I am able to access it without a problem. I can access the non-Citrix IIS test site by entering http://test.domain.com and by http://192.168.1.227

It seems as if XenApp is doing something to the IIS Site when XenApp gets attached to it, that is preventing the site from being accessed by both name and ip address.

I need to be able to access it by both name, and IP address.

Any suggestions or instructions on what to edit or modify that make this happen would be greatly appreciated.

The address is in the reverse lookup zone.

I even tried to create a hosts file and put it in there and added the hosts file and it still is not accessable by IP.

It's not even accessable by IP from the machine that it's hosted on

try to add the address under the xenapp console (web interface) and see if that works

That worked, I actually re-named the IIS Web and XenApp web instance  http://192.168.1.226 and once it has that name, I can connect by entering  http://192.168.1.226 into my web broser.
