Managing network connections from the command line

You can display or change settings for the Server service or the Workstation service while the service is running with Net config. Net config allows you to display the configurable services that are running, or to display and change settings for a service. Additional Net services commands are available.

Netsh overview allows you to, either locally or remotely, display or modify the network configuration of a computer that is currently running. Netsh also provides a scripting feature that allows you to run a group of commands in batch mode against a specified computer. Netsh can also save a configuration script in a text file for archival purposes or to help you configure other servers.
