Changed IP address-app won't work

Hello. Our company recently changed the IP address on our server. We have a VAJ3.5 application running that is connected to our AS/400, which the IP address has also changed on that. I have gone into the connection bean in VAJ3.5 and did an edit on the jdbc connection. Right now, we are using a URL to connect to the database. (jdbc:as400://storekft). Where do I change this connection to make the app work? My boss said our AS/400 is no longer name 'storekft', but 'storek'. I tried changing the URL to read this instead, but still no connection. Anyone have any suggestions??
Thanks a bunch!!!

What protocol are you using? FTP or HTTP
How big is your application? 1 class 100 classes
How old is this application, was it created in the 80's or 90's. The section of code that you are looking for may have been placed somewhere, "Safe/Encapsulated". I am sure that you will find what you need. I am not sure what this has to do with IDE'S? You will probaly have to use an IDE to rebuild your program once you have found the problem.

Usually on AS400 you will have better luck using the ip address rather than url. AS400 is very picky about tcp setup. If changes have been made this would be easiest thing to try. eg. use instead of 'storek'. In datasource, use ip address also. jdbc:as400://
I agree. Here's the link:
