Reconnecting CQC Client to CQC Master when IP addr changes on Master
#1
The CQC master server IP address changed (DHCP vs Static) and the CQC client lost connection to master server.   Quick ques:  Is there an easy way to change IP address on client side to reconnect, or do I have to reload everything on client?   Ps: I already know I need DNS or static IP.  Ken

You don't need DNS. Just give it the name of the host machine, though you do still want it to be a static IP for a server.

Anyway, in the meantime, just run the installer again on the client. On the first screen, uncheck the checkbox at the top that indicates use previous settings, so that you can step back through the settings. On the MS screen, update the MS address. This time just give it the name of the MS machine and you should be good, and it'll still work once you move to a static address (though you may have to restart any clients that are running when you do that.) Then just step on through to the end and let it do the update of that client.
