We have a 3rd party that has setup some laptops with some specialized statistical software. Their software communicates to their server via IPX. They say that TCP/IP causes problems with their software and that collisions on the network cause delays. We obviously don't want to enable TCP/IP all the time if this causes problems. However we do have the need to transfer files another server at certain points throughout the day. The idea would be to create a script that would enable TCP/IP, copy the files to the appropriate server, and then disable TCP/IP.
Because of this i'm looking for a way to enable & disable the entier TCP/IP protocol for the NIC via a script. (VBS, Bat, etc) Is this possible? We already have the scripting needed for transfering the files and such. We just need to be able to enable and disable TCP/IP.
