Change IP address in HP unix

I'd like to know how to change HP Unix ip address? If I'm running Gauntlet firewall in HP unix can I just change it in Gauntlet-Admin? Would it automatically change the system ip address? Thnaks

Sorry, it should be:
/sbin/set_parm ip_address <Return>

PS: /sbin/set_parm  is a script.
`/sbin/set_parms ip_address` (with an "s" on the end of the script name ;-)

This will only change the IP address of the first NIC; Other NICs/addresses should be set/changed through SAM, to ensure all the OS files are updated. You may also need to update your routes.

However, I have no idea how this will affect the Gauntlet firewall application. You may need to review the firewall rules for IP addresses that connect via this system.

   Thanks for the correction. I miss type the command in the first place. it should be:

   /sbin/set_parms ip_address
