i'm hunting for a solution to change the ip adress of an adapter within the commandline (shell) of windows xp. any ideas?
some people are talking about .reg files to change the values in the registry and maybe and ipconfig /renew will do the job afterwards, but i'm more looking for the appropriate command in winxp. i think such a basic command should exist in a os, shouldn't it? (ups)
" from a command prompt and you get this:
Displays and modifies the IP-to-Physical address translation tables used by
address resolution protocol (ARP).
ARP -s inet_addr eth_addr [if_addr]
ARP -d inet_addr [if_addr]
ARP -a [inet_addr] [-N if_addr]
-a Displays current ARP entries by interrogating the current protocol data. If inet_addr is specified, the IP and Physi
addresses for only the specified computer are displayed. I
more than one network interface uses ARP, entries for each
table are displayed.
-g Same as -a.
inet_addr Specifies an internet address.
-N if_addr Displays the ARP entries for the network interface specifie
-d Deletes the host specified by inet_addr. inet_addr may be
wildcarded with * to delete all hosts.
-s Adds the host and associates the Internet address inet_addr
with the Physical address eth_addr. The Physical address i
given as 6 hexadecimal bytes separated by hyphens. The entr
eth_addr Specifies a physical address.
if_addr If present, this specifies the Internet address of the
interface whose address translation table should be modifie
If not present, the first applicable interface will be used
> arp -s 188.8.131.52 00-aa-00-62-c6-09 .... Adds a static entry.
> arp -a .... Displays the arp table.
It appreas that the
command is used to change the IP address of a device.
