ACT Sage 2010 - Network Synchronization and Router Issue

For the past year I've been running ACT 2010 on 2 computers.

The host computer is running Windows 7 whereas the computer connecting to the the host computer is running Windows XP.

Previously I was using a Linksys router and assigned the host computer an IP of 192.168.1.101 and the other computer was set to connect to that IP address.

Now, that router died and before I could do a sync I purchased a new Medialink router and I had to change the IP of the host computer to 192.168.0.101.  I cannot change the IP address on the host server ACT database under the Synchronization Panel under Manage Connection Information (it is grayed out).

My question is how can I change the IP address of the ACT database so it "registers" the new IP address.  Do I need to do anything more on the computer connecting to the host computer besides changing the connection information IP to 192.168.0.101? 

Thanks in advance for any help.

1. Set a new forwarding rule in the new router that points TCP traffic on port 65100 to 192.168.0.100

2. Enter 192.168.0.100 into the remote computer (the one that connects to the host)
