DHCP Settings on Windows 95

By joshua.shapiro ·
I am setting up an SMS Installer script to install DNS upgrades to client computers and I want to include logic that evaluates whether DHCP is set to yes in the TCP/IP configuration. I need to be able to determine this information at execution time; I do not want to have to manually check TCP/IP properties.

I was unable to find any specific file or registry entries that provide this specific information.

If the "HKLM\system\CCS\Services\Class\NetTrans\001" key, string value (IPAddress) is set to """", will DHCP automatically be set to "YES"?

Is there any other way to determine this setting?

Well if there is. there is a generic route to find out.
Install the reference PC with a fixed IP address. Take SysDiff snapshot 1.
Change over to DHCP. Take SysDiff snapshot 2.
Let SysDiff show the exact differences between both snapshots, and there will be a clue as to how DHCP can be detected.

Alternatively, if you suspect that all will be stored in the registry, I remember there are less cumbersome solutions than SysDiff - they solely compare two incarnations of the registry. Probably in the ResKit, just like SysDiff.

Have fun,

my value of that key always shows "0.0.0.0" regardless, but this key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Class\NetTrans\0006
shows "0.0.0.0" on DHCP and my IP when I specify, hoped that helped ya.
good luck,
