Swapping TCP/IPv4 Settings

I'm working on four to six small Windows based networks a day installing firewalls. The networks I run into either utilize a 10.1.10.x, 192.168.1.x or other addressing scheme. I'm always changing my Laptop to a different IP scheme.

Is there an app I can run from a flash drive that  stores each IP scheme in a small DB and allows me to select which scheme I want that Pc to use?

you can probably accomplish this by using a pair of small batch files.

just need a couple lines like this...
netsh int ip set address name="Local Area Connection" address=10.1.10.x/24 gateway=10.41.10.x source=static

Open in new window


if you need to define alternate DNS servers, you can add the following line as well.
netsh int ip set dnsservers name="Local Area Connection" source=static address="10.1.10.x"

Open in new window

I've tested the IP address command in a batch file and it works well.  I don't find a way to set the secondary dns. The primary works well.

Any suggestion?

yes, repeat the command with index=2

netsh int ip set dnsservers name="Local Area Connection" source=static address="10.1.10.x" index=2

I'm running this on Win 7 pro. I'm getting a syntax error when I tried index. Can you see if something is missing?

my apologies... need to do ADD instead of SET

netsh int ip add dnsservers name="Local Area Connection 2" address="10.x.x.x" index=2

"source=static" becomes unnecessary

Final file should look like this...

netsh int ip set address name="Local Area Connection" address=10.1.10.x/24 gateway=10.1.10.x source=static
netsh int ip set dnsservers name="Local Area Connection" source=static address="10.x.x.x"
netsh int ip add dnsservers name="Local Area Connection" address="10.x.x.x" index=2
