SUMMARY

If you do not know the TCP/IP address of the computer that is running Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 98, Windows Millenium Edition, Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows Server 2003, you can determine it quickly by displaying up a Command Prompt and using IPCONFIG at the command prompt.

To start a Command Prompt on a computer that is running Windows 95, click Start, click Run, type WINIPCFG, and then click OK.

To start a Command Prompt on a computer that is running Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, click Start, click Run, type CMD, and then click OK

To start a Command Prompt on a computer that is running Microsoft Windows 98 or Windows Millenium Edition, click Start, click Run, type COMMAND, and then click OK

When you run IPCONFIG, information that is similar to the following appears for each network adaptor that is installed in the computer:
Ethernet adaptor Local Area Connection:

   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . : yourdomain.com
   IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.233
   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.128
   Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
The computer that is running Windows 95 displays a Window that is named IP Configuration with this information, and also to some information about the network adaptor.

MORE INFORMATION

This information is sometimes required when you set up a Remote OLE Automation Server. When you run the Clireg32.exe file on the client machine, the network address field requires either the machine name or the TCP/IP address of the server.
