Can't login to server after netework setting changed


Is there a workaround to access a RH 4.5 server once the network setting have been changed? I can't put it back in the old network to gain access. I have tried root and the password but I can't access the box. Any ideals ?

Root typically only works at the console...remote root access directly is a bad idea. However, if you're getting a login prompt, you should be able to log in with any of the other user ID's.

You don't say alot about what happened, other than "the network setting have been changed" What exactly happened to the box? Can you get to the console?
