Netsh commands for Interface Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4)

Updated: February 8, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

You can use commands in the Netsh Interface IP context to configure the TCP/IP protocol (including addresses, default gateways, DNS servers, and WINS servers) and to display configuration and statistical information.

You can run these commands at the command prompt for the netsh interface ip context. For these commands to work at the command prompt, you must type netsh interface ip before typing commands and parameters as they appear in the syntax below.

For more information on Netsh, see Netsh Overviewand Enter a Netsh Context.

To view the command syntax, click a command:
