   Dear Sir(s),

   I am currently learning to administrate a Debian Server, we have
   web,mail, and ftp service.  I did not originally set up the box and
   I am now faced with a challenge.
   I moved the box across campus and in doing so I must change the IP
   address and the associate files.  But where and exactly how?  I
   have gone to etc/networks and etc/hosts changed the parameters and
   have had no luck.  Any advice?  I have also vi'd the resolv.conf
   and don't know what else to do.

The IP address settings are in /etc/init.d/network.  You more than
likely have already updated /etc/hosts and /etc/networks, but those
should reflect the current info as well.

   www.cclub.pcc.ed when I am on line again,
   p.s. obviously I have attempted to contact the original Sys Admin,
   but he has gone on to another college and has eluded detection:)

Good luck!
