Network IP Addr. change from command lin

By Stanley Langa ·
I managed to use the "reg.exe" tool from the NT-RK to change an IP Address of a machine from the command line. Well, it works on a Win2K machine because I know where the IPAddress key(s) is/are located. Know of an alternative util I can use or whereto find the IPAddress key in WinNT 4.0?

Figure it out myself, here goes:-
Command line: reg update HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\<Adaptor>\Parameters\Tcpip\IPAddress=<IP>

<Adaptor> = Your NIC, use ipconfig /all
<IP> = IP Address to change to in vvv.xxx.yyy.zzz format

Find reg.exe in the WinNT 4.0 Resource Kit

Good Luck

I use regedt32 to change the IP address of my NT 4.0 workstations all the time - just the way you do it

I attended a technical briefing for Microsoft, one of the speaker showed us how to change the IP Address from the command prompt using Windows XP, but I have forgotton the command :-( Is it possible to do it in Windows 2000?

Thanks
