Excuse my ignorance please. I self host my server at home and in changing router my isp changed my ip address. Now the 44 clients I had set up for unattended access disconnected and are unable to reconnect on their own. Is there a way to modify the client installation to reflect the new ip or does this require a new install of a new build installer for each of the 44?
Thanks :)

There is a way to modify to where the client's callback, but it does require a reinstall of the client onto the remote machine. Were the clients calling back specifically to the IP address? In general, we recommend having the clients callback to a DNS hostname so that if the IP address ever changes, the record can be updated and as soon as the change propagates the clients will reconnect.
