How can you invoke Internet Protocol Properties menu via command line?

I would like to invoke the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties menu via a command line.  I know you could use ncpa.cpl to call Network Connections, but I would like to get into Internet Protocol config (see attched bmp).  Is there a way to do this?

Not too sure what you are trying to accomplish, can you clarify. I use NETSH allot as it allows you configure and read current configuration from command line.
Have a read of the bellow KB

Sorry I was not clear ...  What I would like to find a command that I could type via command prompt that would simulate key entry and open the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties screen.  Basically a shortcut.  Then I would be able to call it in a script to simplify entry of data with out additional key strokes and menu navigation.

I still think you would be better off using the netsh command, you can request user input to provide the IP address details using a script if you want.
 The following command configures the interface named Local Area Connection with the static IP address 192.168.0.100, the subnet mask of 255.255.255.0, and a default gateway of 192.168.0.1:
netsh interface ip set address name="Local Area Connection" static 192.168.0.100 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.1 1
Below command sets the primary dns
netsh interface ip set dns "Local Area Connection" static 192.168.0.200
Set Secondary DNS
netsh interface ip add dns "Local Area Connection" 192.168.0.201
 Have a look at the MS KB article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc785383.aspx
