The CGI indicates only the way the script communicates with its environment.

Your question would be better asked as :
  • Is it possible to Change the IP address of a server using bash commands? - Yes. See ifconfig. Or see your distribution's network configuration tool.
  • Is a CGI script allowed to run commands which change the IP address ? - Possible, but definitely should not. Changing IP address should require root privileges and CGI scripts should never acquire root privileges.

Feherke.
