Hey, i'm trying to connect my computer with my roommates computer and when I went to check his IP and subnet mask it said that his winipcfg is not found. Can I just download a new copy of that or what do I need to do?

You can do a "start / run / cmd /k ipconfig" - no quotes

which will show you the IP address

ehh, it is known as ipconfig, not winipconfig. At least is has been this way for the past few OSs (i think it changed at 98). Am I missing something here?

I believe what he mentioned was running "winipcfg". There is no "winipconfig"

As far as the history, IPCONFIG has been around for quite a while.

With Win95, Win98 and ME, in addition there is a GUI interface for looking at the IP information called WINIPCFG.

Windows2000 and XP do not have it built in, but there is a version you can download which was posted earlier.

If you install it into the same directory as the OS, then you can run "wntipcfg" without needing to enter the path.
