test.ipaddress on dedicated hosting windows 2008 iis7

iis7
I am using iis7 mananger
dedicated hosting windows server 2008

I know how to iis7 manager create bindings to have a subdomain for a domain name (website.com)

but can I create a subdomain for an ip address

the ip address uses the folder with files
which I can see on a browser

but when I create http://subdomain.ipaddress
I see Firefox can't find the server at test.ipaddress

I also tried editing port and clicking browse
test.ipaddress:81
test.ipaddress:8080
test.ipaddress:8081

Hi,

I've provided host name as  <test.92.164.85.34>

And host entry done in my local desk as below

192.168.x.x       test.92.164.85.34

and it is working. I haven't tried direct IP address in host-header. If your requirement
is like that then let me know I've to simulate again for that scenario.
