Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)

I just created a new website on our company's server through IIS.  I created it with all of the same settings as an existing website that I know works on our server, with the only difference being that the site that works has an unassigned IP address, and the new site has an IP address, and the TCP port is different as well.  All other settings are the same.  When I try to access a page on the new site, I get the error message
