This is very easy to program with the client supplied menus of LCDproc.
You client would instruct LCDd to have a menu with an IP number item in
it. When it is selected, the user can edit the IP number with the cursor
keys, esc and enter (on a keypad). When the user has completed entering
the number, the client is informed that the nnumber is changed.

See documentation on how to do this, it's on the website. Only the IP
menuitem is probaby not listed, it was added later. Does anyone on the
list know how this IP menuitem is called ?

You'll need to write a client that configures the system according to set
IP numbers etc.
