Default Need help with a router\ip question

If i have a server with an ip adress of say, 1.1.1.1 and the clients are hard coded to this address, if the server was to change to 1.1.1.2, is it possible to set something up on the router to re route the clients. So the client goes to the router looking for 1.1.1.1, but the router re directs it to 1.1.1.2?

anyone got any ideas?

Can you give more info? Is the router between the clients and the server? What kind of router is it? Post some more details and I am sure we can figure something out.

Yes, zack has a point. The router is doing its job. It updated its table to reflect that server 1.1.1.1 is now 1.1.1.2. The point is that it really doesn't matter. Every time a packet crosses a router, it checks the source and destination IP address. So with the routing table updated, it really isn't slowing anything down and still getting to its destination. I wouldn't worry about it if I were you.
