Recently had an issue where a client needed to have their IP address statically assigned and the thought came to mind that my Remote Monitoring software was able to give me command line access, so I thought I would try configuring TCP/IP addressing via the command line interface and not have to interrupt the end users work. Here is how to get it done:
netsh interface ip set address name="Local Area Connection" static [static IP] [subnet mask] [default gateway] 1
That gets the IP address, subnet mask and default gateway – so what about static DNS? Here is the next step:
netsh interface ip add dns name="Local Area Connection" addr=[DNS address #1]
netsh interface ip add dns name="Local Area Connection" addr=[DNS address #2] index=2
