i believe you need to Enumerate

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkCards

Each subkey is a network card with a Description and ServiceName.

Each ServiceName is listed in

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\[ServiceName]

Underneath that key is a Parameters\Tcpip key.

Inside there is the information you need to change.  I think you have to
restart the TCPIP.SYS driver when you've made changes, but don't quote me
on that.

The key won't be exactly as stated since it is a Windows 95 machine we are talking about, but the information is stored in the Registry as shaneholmes has stated.  If you need a code sample, one of us can suply you with one.

Good Luck!

Hi  gwarguitar,

Sorry, I had a brain fart - of course those keys dont exist in Win95!

I dont know off the top of my head where they exist, however, this is what i recommend you do.

(try to find the Keys)

I recommend you run RegEdit

Start ---> Run -->  then typpe in "regEdit" in the command box - hit enter

From the RegEdit main menu, search for keywords, such as IPAddress, IP  Address, NetworkCards, Network Card, etc.

Once you find this key, then you can open it using the TRegistry Object.

Let me know if you need help doing that.
