Alternate tcp/ip config on an xp laptop
Posted on 2007-08-09
Hello, I have a laptop at work that is used at multiple offices, and I would like to let a user setup the
network configuration using the alternate configuration tab on the properties of tcp/ip.
Problem: we have some user that go back and forth between offices...and one office is setup
for static ip's ---all others are on dhcp service. How can a user traveling from one office to another (with
different network settings) and change their tcp/ip settings to the office they are located in?
Note--- all have xp pro loaded on the laptops, and the domain users have no permissions to change tcp/ip settings from their domain account.
I do see the tab for alternate configuration in tcp/ip properties...and I have logged in as a domain administrator, and input all necessary settings. ...for the static setup, AND all settings are correct in the General tab (for dhcp usage).
So, we just need to know how to switch back and forth ---from a domain user's account--when a user travels to another office.
