Possible NAT Solution

We have a need to change IP addresses on a group of servers. Unfortunately we need time to change the clients to point to these new IP's as well. Is there a possible way, maybe using NAT so that clients can telnet to the new address as well as the old address until we can get them all changed to point at the new addresses?

You can Change the IP address of the server and then configure static NAT on the edge device to the old ip address

The Clients will still continue to connect to the old IP till the time you have them change the ip addresses

HTH, rate if it does

Thanks for your reply. A static NAT entry is what I thought of as well. With the static entry I can ping both the new and the old IP address but I can not telnet, ftp, etc. to the "old" IP address.
