What will happen if the IP address on a remote probe changes (say due to NAT at the firewall). Will the core server still know it is the same probe based on some other form of identification or will it not allow it to connect because it believes it is a new probe?

That depends on how the remote probe IP is configured within the web interface. If "any" IP is allowed, the probe should continue to work normally. The same holds true of the IP address in case was provided using the * wildcard (10.0.0.* for example) and the IP in case is within the same range. If only an explicit IP has been defined (10.0.0.1 for example) it would be necessary to define the new IP address, in which case the probe would be able to reconnect.
