Netsh commands for RPC

The Netsh commands for RPC provide a command-line tool that you can use to change, reset, or display either specified or all subnet and interface settings.

Interface refers to an IPv4 address that is active on the computer and has a network adapter associated with it. Subnet refers to a set of zero or more interfaces that resolve to the same subnet address when applied with the appropriate mask.

You can run the Netsh RPC commands from the command prompt for the netsh rpc context. For these commands to work at the Windows Server 2003 family command prompt, you must type netsh rpc before typing commands and parameters as they appear in the syntax below.

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