Win NT 4.5 settings (IP, DNS, Gateway...)

Old WIndows NT server, version 4.5. I am in the process of replacing the server and for that matter, the domain. There is no need for a server. Just 7 people in the office and we just need to share some files. I bought a router and I want to configure the router for the internet use. The catch is, I want to see how the server LAN//WAN was configured. How can I see the server settings? IP, PDNS, SDNS, Gateway, etc... What is the command or the setting I have to go to be able to see this information? I have called the service provider 4 times and I have gotten different information every time from their "tech" support. This is for a project that I was supposed to finish today. Not anymore...  Thank you in advance

The last version of Windows NT was version 4.0, so I'll assume that's what you're referring to.  

You can view the TCP/IP settings on the server by going to the Network icon in Control Panel, clicking on TCP/IP and selecting Properties.  I believe (though it's been awhile since NT4) that you can also retrieve this from the command line with the 'ipconfig /all' command.

Hope this helps.

True, but this will only provide me with some of the info I am looking for. I want the info containing the static IP address, PDNS, SNDS, Gatway, Subnet from the ISP. This is somewhere in the system...

Not necessarily, it will depend on how your server is configured as well as how it connects to the Internet. For example, many networks connect to the Internet via a router such that the ISP's IP and DNS information is configured on the router only. This information does not appear in any TCP/IP configuration on any machine within the internal network because there is no need for it to do so; machines on the internal network obtain a private address from the DHCP on the router, and only the router is configured with the PDNS/SDNS/Gateway information for the ISP.

Perhaps an obvious question, but why not simply obtain this information from your ISP.
