/all : Displays the full TCP/IP configuration for all adapters. /renew [Adapter] : Renews DHCP configuration for all adapters (if an adapter is not specified) or for a specific adapter if the Adapter parameter is included. /release [Adapter] : Sends a DHCPRELEASE message to the DHCP server to release the current DHCP configuration and discard the IP address configuration /flushdns : Flushes and resets the contents of the DNS client resolver cache. /displaydns : Displays the contents of the DNS client resolver cache, which includes both entries preloaded from the local Hosts file and any recently obtained resource records for name queries resolved by the computer. /registerdns : Initiates manual dynamic registration for the DNS names and IP addresses that are configured at a computer. /showclassid Adapter : Displays the DHCP class ID for a specified adapter. /setclassid Adapter [ClassID] : Configures the DHCP class ID for a specified adapter.

>control admintools >services.msc > devmgmt.msc >eventvwr.msc (or just eventvwr) >systeminfo
Displays detailed configuration information about a computer and its operating system, including operating system configuration, security information, product ID, and hardware properties, such as RAM, disk space, and network cards.

>tracert [-d] [-h MaximumHops] [-j HostList] [-w Timeout] [TargetName]
Determines the path taken to a destination by sending Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) Echo Request messages to the destination with incrementally increasing Time to Live (TTL) field values.

>regsvr32 [/u] [/s] [/n] [/i[:cmdline]] dllname
/u : Unregisters server. /s : Specifies regsvr32 to run silently and to not display any message boxes. /n : Specifies not to call DllRegisterServer. You must use this option with /i. /i:cmdline : Calls DllInstall passing it an optional [cmdline]. When used with /u, it calls dll uninstall. dllname : Specifies the name of the dll file that will be registered.

>netstat [-a] [-e] [-n] [-o] [-p Protocol] [-r] [-s] [Interval]
Displays active TCP connections, ports on which the computer is listening, Ethernet statistics, the IP routing table, IPv4 statistics (for the IP, ICMP, TCP, and UDP protocols), and IPv6 statistics -a : Displays all active TCP connections and the TCP and UDP ports on which the computer is listening. -e : Displays Ethernet statistics, such as the number of bytes and packets sent and received. This parameter can be combined with -s. -n : Displays active TCP connections, however, addresses and port numbers are expressed numerically and no attempt is made to determine names.

>nslookup
Displays information that you can use to diagnose Domain Name System (DNS) infrastructure. Before using this tool, you should be familiar with how DNS works. The Nslookup command-line tool is available only if you have installed the TCP/IP protocol.
