Changing URL in Project Web Access

Hello experts!

I have been googling trying to find how to change the default URL in PWA 2010. It seems to only answer via http://LOCALSERVER/PWA and not via any other DNS record I create for it. Also, users on the other side of a VPN connection can only connect to http://LOCALSERVER/ and not http://LOCALSERVER/PWA.

From what I can tell, mangling the database to edit this causes other things to break. What are the 'recommended' steps for this?

    You have to make sure that the browser knows where to go (via correct DNS record), that IIS knows how to answer (via "Bindings" in IIS7, host header under properties in IIS6) and that SharePoint is aware of everything via the Alternate Access Mappings (MOSS '07: Central Admin, Operations, Alternate Access Mappings;  SharePoint '10:  )
