Accessing old wordpress site using IP address after moving to new host

Hi Experts,

We recently migrated the hosting of our website form bluehost to hostgator, and a couple of things are needed from the old site, trouble is, it uses redux framework and need to access the old site to get settings.  When I download the site and db, and setup, the settings are missing.

How can I access the site sitting on our old server? Using IP address, what do I need to do, so I can get access to wordpress admin from old host?

Hi thanks for the feedback...that didnt work, but had to update my local hosts file, then update the database with the IP address of the old server.  Response hear took a while and I amanged to sort it out during the time I was waiting, and with help from old host.  Thanks
Yes, I was afraid (changing the database) of that, and it meant I understood the problem ... Anyway, glad you got it solved.
