Remove Win2000 IPX/SPX protocol with a bat file?

I am looking for a way to remove the NWLink IPX/SPX protocol from 500+ Windows 2000 computers without having to touch each machine and do it manually. Microsoft article Q239834 describes a bat file process for WINNT 4.0. This does not work for Windows 2000. Do you know of any bat file or other process that I can use to do a mass removal? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi
Only thing I could find that comes close. You may need to experiment, but it's a start hopefully. You could look at netset.exe from the resource kit, but that may fall short,
Torgeir's Novell Client uninstall script

Sadly I'm not the worlds best scripter, but there are others around who could help with the tuning,

Deb,

Thanks for the reply. Netset.exe may be a possibility although it looks like the ini file must be created before you push it to a pc to configure the network settings. Not all our pc's have the same settings. However, I may be able to run netset.exe /display, route the output to an ini file, use some type of editor to automatically remove the IPX/SPX line and save the file, and then install the new ini. Anyone think this may be possible and what command would I use to edit and save the file? Thanks.
