re: what types of information is stored within the ipconfig file?

Hi Everyone:

      I am interested in knowing what types of information is stored within the ipconfig file.  I have used various troubleshooting techniques, under the supervision of a technician, using the word ipconfig within the DOS prompt, like ipconfig/all, ipconfig/renew, etc.  I know what ipconfig/renew does, but, I am not sure what ipconfig/all does exactly.

      Any feedback on this question will greatly be appreciated.

      Thank you.
