Changing Network Setting in NT

Under Windows NT if you manke a change in the CurrentControlSet do you need to make a change in the controlsetoox where x is a number.
I'm trying to change network settings, and am looking for the best method.
Thanks

What settings do you want to chage? There are several methods to do this without directly accessing the registry...

I need to change the IP address, gateway, subnet mask, DNS- host, domain, DNS servers, suffix search order. I'm limited to using a java based lanquage.. The changes are being done remotely over a Lan connection.

No, the CurrentControlSet hive is the one in effect.  The others are backup copies that NT makes so that you can have a "last known good" registry to fall back on if a problem develops.  Any changes you make in CurrentControlSet will eventually make their way into the CurrentControlSetXXX trees but these are not normally used by NT.

You can change these settings in the registry on NT to effect changes in the network setups.  In most cases, however, you need to perform a reboot before NT will accept the changes and use the new settings.
