    Dos Command's

    I don't work much in dos so when a friend asked me this question I was dumb founded....

    When He runs ipconfig /all from the run line the window will pop up quick, do it's thing and then close....

    I know you can type something after that( ipconfig /all -? ) to tell the window to stay open but I didn't know what. Maybe someone here could help me?

    type "command" first - that will open up a dos shell - which will stay open until you type "exit", you can run ipconfig from there.
    If its w2k or nt4 replace "command" with "cmd"

    If your friend runs Windows 98 he can type "winipcfg" in the run box.

    This does the same as the "ipconfig" command but in a nice GUI.

    (I believe this works for Windows 95 as well)

    Or if you want to use the command line you can do as petemcevoy suggested.

    Hope this has helped you

    To expand on that answer, the MS-DOS prompt is the best way to use ping, netstat, and all the other built-in DOS commands. If you just run ping from the start menu, it'll close out right after the 4th packet comes back, for example.

    Click Start, programs, accessories, msdos prompt then you can do what ever you need to do. When your done just press X or type exit. If its not in the accessories then it might just be under programs tabs.
    Hope that helped.

    Open up a dos window first and then type ipconfig/all. To exit type "exit". If its a win95 or win98 box then you have to use winipcfg to display the same info. Hope this helps.

    I believe what he was looking for was an answer to stop dos programs from opening, running, and then closing.

    This can be simply solved by ipconfig /all | pause

    The other ways mentioned do work, however.
