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 http://www.admintoyssuite.com/
It allows you to change network card settings instead of just viewing IP address, mask, DHCP etc.
Hope that helps
