    Yeah go to run. Type cmd. Type ipconfig /all.
    Or are you trying to do it remotely?

    Kind of a broad, general kind of question, don't you think? Can you be a bit more specific?

    If your planning to run it on a Windows platform then i'd recommend VB (visual basic) . Just create a WinSock component and get the information you need from that and display it with labels on a simple form.

    Hope this helped
    Good Luck

    you have not given info about the os or the scripting lan but the following would work on windows if you can use os commands:
    ipconfig/all>c:\info.txt&c:\info.txt

    Yeah, you have provided too little information. Also (aside from what has been said) go to start&gt;run and type winipcfg. That might help a little, but you need to be more specific on what you're trying to accomplish or what you need help with.

    i think you should start out by specifying the question better and maby you should start by using RUN and then cmd and if u know what you are doing half way i think it should work form there

    Hi all,

    Many thanks for all your replies.
    Sorry for not being specific.



    I need to write up a script to show the required computer information for computer users in my company.
    I am running an internal IT helpdesk and to troubleshoot problems, and so i need the information from users.
    It does not look good when we keep asking users to do ipconfig/all and things like that....

    The OS used is WIN XP.

    For scripting wise, any recommendations on how to go about it?
    Thanks again/
