I don't have an environment where I can test this currently. In Windows 7, can you set the same static ip address/netmask (no gateway) on multiple interfaces using netsh from command line? Or will it give me some sort of error? I ask because I need to change two interfaces (flip them essentially) and don't want to disable one in between changing the other.
For example, if I have the following:
Local Area Connection 1: 192.168.1.123 255.255.0.0
Local Area Connection 2: 192.168.1.234 255.255.0.0
And I want to flip them like so
netsh interface ipv4 set address name="Local Area Connection 1" static 192.168.1.234 255.255.0.0
netsh interface ipv4 set address name="Local Area Connection 2" static 192.168.1.123 255.255.0.0
My hope is that it will perform both commands, one after the other, successfully.
