Well, it sounds like your problem could be that Networking is not properly installed or not properly configured.

If you can provide a context - why your trying to do this via the command line, a description of the system, it's IP configuration, etc - I might be able to provide a better comment.

Hi ajalboush,

Try login as a domain admin to move the client from the domain.

Reset the stack on that computer:

Also, fix Winsock if it's broken:

After this, you should be functional again.
