you can set this on the PC using c:\program files (x86)\dell\kace\amptools.exe -resetconf host=SERVERNAME
The weburl etc are provided with a query against the KACE

If the machines all have the same public adress, you simply need to exclude this one on the right place (Settings > General Settings > Ignore Client IP Settings) then the provided IP is a step deeper (from the router from where it connects to the server to the next router or the device)
After the next check in you will see the next IP
