Ip change SCO UNIX 3.2.4.2

I had a router change and needed to change the ip in some machines.
I have two machines on SCO Unix 3.2.4.2
I changed the IP in my chain(relinked kernel, used as default) and in /etc/hosts on both.
One is fine. The other I am unable to get to with putty.
Is there anything else I would need to change?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Changed the title to get SCO help, not all of us know the system very well.

is the hardware as old as the operating system?
Check to see if there is a script in /etc/rc2.d that might set a default route.
Run 'netstat -nr' to confirm the network settings.
Check to see if the host name is recorded twice in /etc/hosts.
Can you ping the machine that does not respond to telnet.
With putty, are you attempting to access the host via name or ip address, and are you trying this locally or through the router?
If through the router, did you change the firewall/port forwarding settings?

You might also look at /etc/default/tcp, to see if the gateway address is correct.

That was my next step to see if there is an offending file

The '192.168.1.46' I cannot ping. The other machine I can access via telnet or rlogin as usual.

I access via the ip address. I haven't attempted to connect via hostname. Done all through the router.

Would that be an issue if I can access the one sco unix box but not the other?

You don't have a gateway address.
Add a script to /etc/rc2.d that executes after S85tcp that contains:
Code:
route add default 192.168.1.x

or edit the/etc/default/tcp so that GATEWAY has a value.

The scripts in /etc/rc2.d execute in alphabetical order.
