Got a script that runs automatically to set the IP address of my
win2000 servers.

It uses the following command:-

netsh interface ip set address local static <IP address> <netmask>
<default gateway> 1

Doesnt give an error but does nothing. Leaves IP as 0.0.0.0.

If I go into network connections, I can change the IP from there but I
need to be able to run from script.

To avoid ambiguities, you should specify the name of the connection you wish
to modify, e.g. like so:

netsh interface ip set address name="wireless pcmcia" static
192.168.1.44 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.2 1

Have tried completely uninstalling the network interfaces and
reinstalling but still the same.

Strangely enough, it listed the interfaces as Local Area Interface 2
and 3 again. Whats happened to 1? IS there something in the registry
or something deciding that theres aleady a LAN 1?

netsh interface ip set address name="wireless pcmcia"  static
  192.168.1.44  255.255.255.0 192.168.1.2 1

So what does LOCAL do?

Also, still doesnt work even if I use the interface name. Appears to
work and comes back OK though.
