How do I find my TCP/IP configuration?
There are two methods of doing this - the quick and the long method depending on how much information you want:
The quick method (limited configuration):
Load a Command Prompt (a DOS box) (start/programs/Command Prompt)
If using windows '95 or Windows '98 enter
winipcfg - this will display your IP address, subnet mask and default gateway (local router)
If using Windows NT enter
ipconfig - this will display your IP address, subnet mask and default gateway (local router)
The long method (full configuration) - Windows '95, '98 and NT 4.x, Windows 2K:
Click start\\settings\\control panel
Double click 'Network'
Select 'Protocols' tab
Select TCP/IP then click 'Properties'
Navigate to the relevant tab to find the required information.
