IP redirection (accessing remote server)

I have a small fleet of 40 computers behind a firewall, and we access a remote windows server with the IP of x.x.x.x

Now, I'm changing the server host, and new IP will be y.y.y.y.

As most users connect simply via shortcut for remote session, is there a way to transfer all requests to the new IP?

In the same way that I'd use hosts file in windows to redirect requests to a site to localhost for development?

I hope my question is understandable, and thank you for any advice!

    @pantom you cannot redirect the client, but you could create a NAT rule which translates Original Destination x.x.x.x to Translated Destination y.y.y.y

    Maybe this causes trouble later on in case your client software somewhat a certificate for x.x.x.x etc, but it's worth a try.

    Thank you, this is what I figured, but decided to ask first.

    I'll test it and report the results here for other people.
