Allow IIS redirect from external URL

We have a client that uses a DNS CNAME to forward internal requests for example.client.com from their server to our server at redirect.host.com. Our server is an IIS 6.0 server.
Should the redirect be allowed in by IIS on our server? Or is there a list of allowed IPs somewhere, where we can restrict the IPs that redirect to this site?
The client mentioned updating host headers, but I am not aware of how to do this.
Any help appreciated.

Thanks. That is a restriction for what IP addresses can access the site. This is currently set to 'all computers granted'.
But is there a section where I can allow redirects from specific IPs?

I worked this out. I had to add example.client.com to the host header under IIS 6.
Site properties>Web Site tab>advanced button. Assigned example.client.com to port 80
