The IPCONFIG utility displays invalid results for Microsoft Network Client for MS-DOS version 3.0 and Microsoft LAN Manager for MS-DOS version 2.2c.
This problem occurs when you configure your computer as a DHCP client and then later modify the IP configuration to be a non-DHCP client. If you execute the IPCONFIG utility, the results displayed will reflect the old DHCP configuration values and not the current statically assigned IP addresses.
To work around this problem, use the PROTOCOL.INI file to determine the current statically assigned IP addresses.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Network Client for MS-DOS version 3.0 and Microsoft LAN Manager for MS-DOS version 2.2c. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
