Pam - use the cmd line switch - [ ipconfig -all ] there is a space between the ipconfig and the -all. That will show you a lot more info. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TTFN – Vic "To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ _____ From: pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Pam Sent: Wednesday, 05 February, 2003 06:10 To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx winipcfg doesn't work on Win2k. ipconfig can only be run from the command prompt and only tells me that it's IP is 126.96.36.199, subnet is 255.255.255.0, and default gateway is 188.8.131.52. If you type in cmd /k ipconfig / all at the run prompt it gives you more information. it tells me what type of nic, physical address, DHCP enabled yes/no, DNS Servers..... but the DHCP Enabled says No. It should say yes, right? Pam Pam: Not enough info, when you do an ipconfig on 2000 machine and winipcfg what do you see as IPs on both ?
