Greetings!  Short one today.  Over the last week I have had to change a set of IP addresses for a new project repeatedly.

To save time I decided to quickly make a batch script to do it for me!  The premise is that there are two computers being used for a specific task and are connecting to a real time emulator.  The software being designed assumes that whatever computer it is on the local IP address is always the same (192.168.1.2).

 

The users simply have to double click on the batch file to set the IP, or when they're done they double click on a second batch file to reset the network connection back to dynamically allocated (dhcp).

 

Batch script one:

netsh int ip set address name = "Local Area Connection" source = static addr = 192.168.1.2 mask = 255.255.255.0

Batch script two:

netsh interface ip set address name "Local Area Connection" dhcp

 

Very short, very simple, but saves me a ton of time!  That's all for now!

Thanks,

Derek
