Net services overview

Many services use networking commands that begin with the word net. These net commands have some common properties:

  • You can see a list of all available net commands by typing net /? at a command prompt.

  • You can get syntax help at the command line for a net command by typing net help command at a command prompt. For example, for help with the net accounts command, type the following:

    net help accounts

  • All net commands accept /y (yes) and /n (no) command-line options. For example, the net stop server command prompts you to confirm that you want to stop all dependent Server services, while net stop server /y, by automatically answering yes, bypasses the confirmation prompt and shuts down the Server service.

  • If a service name contains spaces, use quotation marks around the text (that is, "Service Name"). For example, the following command starts the net logon service:

    net start "net logon"

  • For more information about Net services commands, see Net services commands
