Record IP info before making changes

searchWin2000 member Stephen Kent explains how to save your IP info as a backup, in case you mess up while altering it.

Before you alter the IP information on your machine, use the command "ipconfig /all > filename.txt." Example: ipconfig...

/all > c:ipinfo.txt.

This records all of your IP information to a text file on you C: drive called ipinfo.

If you want to record the data for multiple machines and append it to a file on your network, you can use the command "ipconfig /all >> share namefilename." Example: ipconfig /all >> computer1filesnetworkIP.txt."

Using these commands will give you a reference to return to if you mess up while altering you IP information.
