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.

Displays all current TCP/IP network configuration values and refreshes Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and Domain Name System (DNS) settings. Used without parameters, ipconfig displays the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway for all adapters.

basically ipconfig shows the information stored about your TCP/IP settings and network protocols.
