I installed confluence on a hyper-v host. The address dhcp gave me was 192.168.1.205. The physical port died so i changed to to another port. After changing the port i was issued a new address, 192.168.1.29. I then reset the address to static and gave it the 192.168.1.205 address. I am now unable to log back on to confluence. I can ping the server and ssh to it.
How are you trying to log on? I am assuming you cannot access the login page at all, please let me know if that is not the case.
I am guessing you are using the IP and port, for example:
Please ssh to the server and try a wget on the localhost and port, to see if Confluence serves the login page - here is an example of what the output looks like if the instance is running:

If you can get a response locally then we will have narrowed it down to a networking issue.
