    installing ip's, is there a faster way?

    Hi,

    my server has over 20 i.ps with it, is there a faster way to install IP's to the server than what i'm curretnly doing?

    Right now I go to network section to my adapter, then to Advanced TCP/IP settings.

    I then install my IP addresses, 1 by 1.

    is there a better way? I hope so!

    If you have a block, i suppose you can write a shell script to install and bring up @ boot. I assume your bringing up the ip's via ifconfig?

    Sounds like he's running Windows, so doubt a shell script is going to help much.

    nope,

    You think 20 is bad I have a server with /23. replacing a nic card is a pain in the rear.

    yeah i'm running windows 2003 server standard.

    the host gave me the i.p's, i have to manually enter them.

    currently i'm using the method i described in the 1st post.

    that's all i know

    any links to creating these shell scripts?

    A shell script would only work with linux. I thought you had linux

    ... With only 20 IP's, that couldn't even take 5 minutes.... Probably about the same amount of time as posting, and following up on that post

    use windows scripting host, you can write a script in perl or vbscript and it will get the job done. Good luck.
