I have been asked to change our gateway servers IP address in our DMZ. Just curious where would I need to make this change in the GAW configuration. I know I'll have to physically change the servers but not sure where I'll need to make the changes in GoAny. (I didn't originally setup the system... just inherited it). Any advice / instruction would be greatly appreciated. - Thanks...

To change the Gateway IP address you will need to edit the gateway.xml file located in the [Install Dir]/GoAnywhere Gateway/config folder. You can view and edit the file in your preferred text editor. Inside the gateway.xml file you will see the IP addresses that pertain to the physical server you are setting up Gateway on. We recommend using a "Find and Replace" function within your text editor to easily update all IP addresses in this file. You will also need to change the IP on the Controller Address field within the Gateway Manager.
