Alternate IP configuration options

Here is my scenario:

  • Portable Win2k PCs traveling between home and office environments
  • Each PC contains only one network adapter
  • Office TCP/IP environment: static IP addresses
  • Home environment: DHCP served by router connected to cable/DSL modem


  • To somehow have a mechanism in place to easily change TCP/IP parameters between the two environments (.cmd procedure, etc.)
  • To make it impossible for users to manually change network parameters

    Can you offer any suggestions?
