There is some truth to the claim about the ip addresses. the machines
are running oracle, netscape's ldap server, iplanet, snareworks, and a
custom jsp application.
you would have to change the ip address for the machines and in all of
the various config files for each of the applications. they are being a
bit lazy and should have such things documented but they don't.
thanks for the answer on the routing. I suspected as much. I don't
suppose they make cheap, little routers that could do such a thing.
