                  This works on NT4 and W2K but on W2K there are better ways than using this undocumented  function.

I hope this helps !

You can change the TCP/IP configuration of any Windows 2000 network adaper at runtime without having to reboot. Note that the first IP address in the list will be used as primary address, so if you want to change the primary address, you need to remove all addresses which are on top of the primary and to add them below again.

Note: the change of the primary IP address does drop all open TCP connections, so if you'rte doing remote control or so, you'll have to reconnect right after changing the IP. This is normal.
