Lotus Notes - How to Change a Roaming User's Destination Server Address

I have a user who is a roaming user.  They used to have a desktop PC that used our internal DNS server address for the Domino server's internal IP address.  Now, we have upgraded this user to a laptop, and I want to change the IP address they contact the server through to our external address.

I have tried the Client Reconfiguration Wizard, but after closing and reopening Notes and trying to perform a trace, it's still connecting to the internal IP address, not the external address I used during the reconfig wizard.

I also tried changing it through Domino Administrator in their Roaming Address Book as well as locally in their address book (under Advanced/Connections).  When performing the trace, it still shows the internal address, not the external address!


Thanks in advance!
