Does the ipconfig command only work on the workstation that you are physically on or can it be used across a domain/workgroup? Is there a different command that does accomplish this?

It only works on the current workstation. You can use the PsExec tool to run it on a remote machine:

> psexec \\remotecomputer ipconfig /all

If you have more than one computer, you can put the computer names in a textfile (eg computerlist.txt) and run it like this:

> psexec @computerlist.txt ipconfig /all

For anyone who interested in the solution how to get IP config remotely..

I found the best way to obtain IP settings remotely. It can be easily done with Remote IP Configuration utility of AdminToys Suite from

It allows you to change network card settings instead of just viewing IP address, mask, DHCP etc.

Hope that helps
