Need help on using netsh to configure remote machine's static IP


Q

Qunli Qiang

I have two Windows 2000 machines in a workgroup, not a domain. The
user Administrator on both machines have the same password. I tried to
change another machine's static IP using netsh without success.

C:\>netsh
netsh>set machine pf3testdb2

[pf3testdb2] netsh>show address
The following command was not found: show address.
[pf3testdb2] netsh>

It looks like a privelege issue. Can someone tell me how to make it
work?

Thanks in advance!

It's telling you the problem here - "show address" isn't a valid
command. - You need to change the netsh context to "interface".

try using

"interface ip show address"

Thanks for your reply.

Following are the results:

C:\Documents and Settings\qqiang>netsh -r pf3testdb2
[pf3testdb2] netsh>interface ip
[pf3testdb2] interface ip>show config

Configuration for interface "{2792E8A5-003C-454B-B37A-F82443F68AC1}"
DHCP enabled: Yes
InterfaceMetric: 1
DNS servers configured through DHCP
WINS servers configured through DHCP

The remote machine is configured to use static IPs. The "show config"
command actually showed my local settings. Any ideas?
