I did what you explained me and it works, that is to say: I see in my command line the same change in IP address, but the change doens't seem te be written away in the original file.
It's like it does the change, but does not save it. Is there maybe an extra command I have to give to write it away in the orginal file (after it's been backed-up ofcourse Smilie)?
P.S. This really is exactly what I was seeking, so thanks a lot already for all the help!!!

No offense but I was not aware that you are totally new to shell scripting. You can add a > symobol at the very end of the awk line so that it will be redirected into a filename like for example:

awk '... some code in here ...' file1 file2 > outfile

I guess it will be very good for you to read up a bit more of shell scripting in general since you will need it to put the puzzle together anyway.

Have a look at this, read it, play around with it:

Well, I recently changed work, and on my now job, we just began working with Linux servers. So I am a newbie when it comes to shell scripting.
I'm getting the hang of Linux and it's commands, but the scripting, that's another thing. But in september I'm taking a professional course of Linux.
Really looking forward to it, so I can finaly say bye-bye to windows 4-ever.
And to be honest, the link of the shell scripting you gave, I allready have it in my Favorites, just did not have time to begin reading...
Tommorow I'm gonna try this last thing you said, but basicly, I think we are where I wanted to be.
I will let you know how it went!

Yep, works perfect..
Put a line after that to move the file to where it's supposed te be, and everithing is ok.
Again, thank you so much for the help, this forum is the best!!!
