The Post Office server has a public and private IP address. Administrator would like to be able to force GroupWise clients to connect to a specific IP address. When using the  /ipa-ip_address_or_name and /ipp-port_number switches, the client will still attempt to connect to the other IP address.


Uninstall the client and re-install on the internal IP address if that is the desired address or uninstall the client and re-install on the external IP address if that is the desired address.


The GroupWise client prefers it's original creation address, if the connection is available.
