Can you elaborate? Is this a public IP for which you provide various services?

RE:IP change

You will need to change your IP in any running server you have. httpd and smtp for sure. If you are running a firewall (surely you are not running wide open!) you will need to rewrite your rules. Lastly, you get to wait for Time-To-Live to expire so other DNS servers will look up your new IP.

You need to give more info buddy, we are not in the same office helping you ?

If you changes a server IP, you need to change all the configs for all the services that bounds to the new IP ( mail relay, virtualhosts for apache, IPtables firewall rules, etc etc. )
