Netsh commands for Interface Portproxy

Updated: January 21, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

Netsh commands for Interface Portproxy

The Netsh Interface Portproxy commands provide a command-line tool for use in administering servers that act as proxies between IPv4 and IPv6 networks and applications. You can use these commands to establish proxy service in the following ways:

  • IPv4-configured computer and application messages sent to other IPv4-configured computers and applications.

  • IPv4-configured computer and application messages sent to IPv6-configured computers and applications.

  • IPv6-configured computer and application messages sent to IPv4-configured computers and applications.

  • IPv6-configured computer and application messages sent to other IPv6-configured computers and applications.

When writing batch files or scripts using these commands, each command must be preceded by netsh interface portproxy. For example, when using the delete v4tov6 command to specify that the portproxy server delete an IPv4 port and address from the list of IPv4 addresses for which the server listens, the batch file or script must use the following syntax:

netsh interface portproxy delete v4tov6 listenport= {Integer | ServiceName} [[listenaddress=] {IPv4Address| HostName}] [[protocol=]tcp]

You can run these commands from the Windows Server 2003 family command prompt or from the command prompt for the Netsh interface portproxy context. For these commands to work at the Windows Server 2003 family command prompt, you must type netsh interface portproxy before typing commands and parameters as they appear in the syntax below. There might be functional differences between Netsh context commands on Windows 2000 and the Windows Server 2003 family.

For more information about Netsh, see Netsh overview and Enter a netsh context.
