The system maintains an ARP (address resolution protocol) table that tells it how to connect to other servers. My guess is that the ARP needed to be refreshed. On a UNIX system that would be command:
arp -d
But I am unsure what command might do the equivalent on i.

Last night we put in all new switches, and quickly replugged the IBM i
Ethernet cable, and the system went on running, telnet for sure.

However, the http servers no longer connected. This morning I
re-started all the HTTP servers, but we were still unable to connect.

I then did an IPL which brought everything back up.
