How to change the IP address of a Robot or a Hub?

Resolution

To change the IP of a robot or hub:

1. Stop the UIM robot or hub
2. Navigate to your UIM install folder
3. Open \Nimsoft\robot.cfg file
4. Edit the line robotip: with the new ip
5. Start the robot/hub service

Additional Information

If the above does not work and the IP address reverts back to the original -> that means that the new IP can't be selected with the current network card. To select a new network card you must reinstall the robot/hub. The option to select a new network card is only available at install. It can't be edit once installed, as its hard coded.
