Problem:

How does the StarTeam Web Server handle changes in the IP address of the machine hosting the server?

Resolution:

No changes need to be made to the StarTeam Web Server configuration files when the host machine IP address changes.  The service should be restarted however to allow the server to bind to the new IP address. All client browsers should have their bookmarks updated to reflect the new address.  Using the hostname rather than the IP address avoids any issues with a change in IP address (such as when using DHCP).
