Ipconfig is command line tool used to control the network connections. The Ipconfig command displays all current TCP/IP network configuration values which includes IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DHCP Server IP, Mac Address, DNS and other details regarding a computer and the network. Ipconfig command also refreshes Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and Domain Name System (DNS) settings.
