Please Whitelist This Site?
I know everyone hates ads. But please understand that I am providing premium content for free that takes hundreds of hours of time to research and write. I don't want to go to a pay-only model like some sites, but when more and more people block ads, I end up working for free. And I have a family to support, just like you. :)
If you like The TCP/IP Guide, please consider the download version. It's priced very economically and you can read all of it in a convenient format without ads.
If you want to use this site for free, I'd be grateful if you could add the site to the whitelist for Adblock. To do so, just open the Adblock menu and select "Disable on tcpipguide.com". Or go to the Tools menu and select "Adblock Plus Preferences...". Then click "Add Filter..." at the bottom, and add this string: "@@||tcpipguide.com^$document". Then just click OK.
Thanks for your understanding!
Sincerely, Charles Kozierok

TCP/IP Configuration Utilities (ipconfig, winipcfg and ifconfig)
(Page 5 of 5)
The winipcfg Utility
In earlier versions of Windows, a
graphical tool called winipcfg is supplied (either instead of,
or in addition to, the ipconfig command-line utility). This program
allows configuration parameters to be examined in much the same way
as ipconfig, and also allows DHCP leases to be released and renewed,
but does not support the other options of ipconfig (such as displaying
the hosts DNS cache). An example of the main winipcfg screen
is shown in Figure 322.
Figure 322: Windows 95/98/ME winipcfg Utility
The winipcfg utility can be used in older consumer-oriented versions of Windows to check the configuration of a host and release/renew DHCP leases.
Key Concept: On UNIX systems, the ifconfig utility can be used to display or modify a large number of TCP/IP configuration settings. Windows systems provide either the command-line utility ipconfig or the graphical tool winipcfg. Both let an administrator see basic TCP/IP configuration information for a host and allow tasks to be performed such as renewing a DHCP lease, but they are otherwise quite limited compared to the UNIX ifconfig program.
