Resolution

When changing the IP address of the tunnel server, you must create a new Certificate Authority configuration.  To do this:

On the tunnel server, in the hub configuration, tunnels tab, server configuration subtab:

  1. un-check the active checkbox
  2. click apply
  3. restart the probe,
  4. recheck the checkbox and click apply again.

You will see a message that says:

"This Hub has already been configured as a Certificate Authority once, would you like to create a new CA anyway and replace the old configuration?"

Choose 'Yes".
