are you using host headers? If so, be sure to add them in IIS manager (Web Site
Tab, Advanced button)

Configuring an alternate  Access mapping in SharePoint takes care of SharePoint
recognizing the site, but you also need to make sure that DNS will respond to
that address with an appropriate IP address and that IIS will recognize the AAM
as the host header for the website.
