What is the proper way to change the ip address of snow leopard server.  We have a client with a small 3 user system, we need to change it as they present router is behind another router (from office which they rent space) and the double natting seems to be causing issues.  Can it be done without making a backup of the Open Directory and reimporting users etc.?

Thanks, will be working on this tomorrow morning

You can by changing the IP.
