    that's cause winipcfg is used in win95 and win NT, and has changed to ipconfig later

    If you use win xp try "ipconfig" and "ipconfig/all" typed in a comd prompt.

    Try pulling up a command prompt and running "ipconfig". This is the ip info tool for NT based systems, so I figure that is probably what works on XP on as well.
    Use "ipconfig /all" to see all the ip info.
    Good luck!

    Here are the other switches and syntax:

    The syntax for Ipconfig.exe is:
    ipconfig [/? | /all | /release [adapter] | /renew [adapter] | /flushdns | /registerdns]

    Parameter Description
    /? Display this help message
    /all Display full configuration information
    /release Release the IP address for the specified adapter
    /renew Renew the IP address for the specified adapter
    /flushdns Purge the DNS resolver cache
    /registerdns Refresh all DHCP leases and re-register DNS names
    /displaydns Display the contents of the DNS resolver cache
    You can find this at this link: Options for IPCONFIG

    i see some missing tony ..so here are some more switches ....

    /all Display full configuration information.
    /release Release the IP address for the specified adapter.
    /renew Renew the IP address for the specified adapter.
    /flushdns Purges the DNS Resolver cache.
    /registerdns Refreshes all DHCP leases and re-registers DNS names
    /displaydns Display the contents of the DNS Resolver Cache.
    /showclassid Displays all the dhcp class IDs allowed for adapter.
    /setclassid Modifies the dhcp class id.

    The default is to display only the IP address, subnet mask and
    default gateway for each adapter bound to TCP/IP.

    For Release and Renew, if no adapter name is specified, then the IP address
    leases for all adapters bound to TCP/IP will be released or renewed.

    For Setclassid, if no ClassId is specified, then the ClassId is removed.

    > ipconfig ... Show information.
    > ipconfig /all ... Show detailed information
    > ipconfig /renew ... renew all adapters
    > ipconfig /renew EL* ... renew any connection that has its
    name starting with EL
    > ipconfig /release *Con* ... release all matching connections,
    eg. "Local Area Connection 1" or
    "Local Area Connection 2"
