Set IP address information on a client's NIC

Set IP address information on a client's NIC

Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP provide the Netsh utility, which, among its many capabilities, can configure...

the IP properties of NICs. To set a static IP address, use this format: netsh interface ip set address local static

Here is an example:
netsh interface ip set address local static 192.168.1.15
255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1 1

To set a client's NIC DNS settings, run this command:

netsh interface ip set dns local static 192.168.1.150
primary

To set a client back to DHCP, run these commands:

netsh interface ip set address local source=dhcp
netsh interface ip set dns local source=dhcp

Note: Some command lines wrap to two lines here because of space constraints.
