What is the easiest way to back up my network setting on my Win XP Pro machine.  I want to experiment with some other network settings and I can't always get back to my orginal setup without alot of trial and error.


RE: Backup Network Settings

pen and paper usually work for me.

what settings would you like to back up?
 - ip configuration?
 - dialup connections?
 - shared folders?

RE: Backup Network Settings

IP Config

RE: Backup Network Settings

Use the Netsh.exe utility to do a dump of your settings.  You can then later do a Netsh restore if you need to. This is a great way to handle setting TCP/IP parameters and values for different network settings.

Daniel Petri has a nice little tutorial:  http://www.petri.co.il/configure_tcp_ip_from_cmd.htm

Note: Daniel's site is being re-organized, if you get an error message page from the link above, just click on that page Knowledge Base, Tips and Tricks, Tweaks, and look for "Configure TCP/IP from the command line."
