Changing network connection properties

Recommended Posts

Mechaflash

What functions should I be looking into for changing network connection properties? Specifically, I need to target the primary and secondary DNS server addresses and default gateway.

Edit: Just in case not to raise any red flags...

The guy working in my department before me had entered the prim. and sec. DNS servers in reverse order... and we host our own DNS servers where one is a primary, which accepts any additions/changes, and the secondary syncs with the primary every night. Sometimes we need changes to take effect immediately on all of our machines connected to these DNS servers so there's a need to change the order on the workstations

You could try your luck with netsh.exe (already in Windows). Here's something to get started:

Global $adminuser, $adminpass, $admindomain
;===========================================
;Hard code the user and password here.
;===========================================
$adminuser = "admin"
$adminpass = "admin"
$admindomain = ""
$q = Chr(34)
Func _RunAsAdmin($cmd)
    RunAsWait($adminuser, $admindomain, $adminpass, 1, $cmd)
EndFunc;==>_RunAsAdmin
$varip = "netsh interface ip set address " & $q & "Local Area Connection" & $q & " dhcp"
$vardns = "netsh interface ip set dns " & $q & "Local Area Connection" & $q & " dhcp"
_RunAsAdmin($varip)
_RunAsAdmin($vardns)

That works for me.

netsh interface ip set address name="Local Area Connection" gateway=192.168.xxx.xxx gwmetric="AUTO"
