Show interface IP Address in Windows 10

Commands below work in Windows 10, I think it will also work in Windows 2012.

Displaying or show IP Address in Windows is quite straight forward using ipconfig /all command.

The command has the /all parameter so it will display the IP Address of all the interfaces on the machine.

Display IP Address of a specific interface in Windows via command line using “netsh” tool.

To display the interface IP Address you need to get the interface name.

Typing the command below will show all the interface name and its state whether its connected or disconnected.

     netsh interface show interface

Sample output:
Admin State    State          Type             Interface Name
Enabled        Connected      Dedicated        Ethernet
Enabled        Connected      Dedicated        VMware Network Adapter VMnet1
Enabled        Connected      Dedicated        VMware Network Adapter VMnet8
Enabled        Connected      Dedicated        Wi-Fi
Enabled        Disconnected   Dedicated        Ethernet 2

To get the IP Address of a particular interface, type:

Wi-Fi is the name of an interface, replace the parameter with any interface name.

     netsh interface  ipv4  show ipaddresses  Wi-Fi

Sample output:

Address Parameters
Interface Luid     : Wi-Fi
Scope Id           : 0.0
Valid Lifetime     : 3h31m50s
Preferred Lifetime : 3h31m50s
DAD State          : Preferred
Address Type       : Dhcp
Skip as Source     : false

The output also shows whether the IP Address was set via DHCP or not.

To display IP Address of all the interfaces using netsh, type:

    netsh interface  ipv4  show ipaddresses

Interface 13: Wi-Fi
Addr Type  DAD State   Valid Life Pref. Life Address
---------  ----------- ---------- ---------- ------------------------
Dhcp       Preferred     3h30m11s   3h30m11s

Interface 1: Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1
Addr Type  DAD State   Valid Life Pref. Life Address
---------  ----------- ---------- ---------- ------------------------
Other      Preferred     infinite   infinite
Interface 24: Ethernet

Addr Type  DAD State   Valid Life Pref. Life Address
---------  ----------- ---------- ---------- ------------------------
Other      Preferred     infinite   infinite

Interface 4: Local Area Connection* 3
Addr Type  DAD State   Valid Life Pref. Life Address
---------  ----------- ---------- ---------- ------------------------
Other      Tentative     infinite   infinite

To get more information about the interface, type:

     netsh interface  ipv4 show interfaces level=verbose

Sample output:

Copy a single file using robocopy

Copy a single file using robocopy from a local folder to a shared folder on the network.
A simple rule of thumb before any disaster strike, don't interchange the source and the destination.

If source and destination is mistakenly reverse, files might get overwritten. To avoid any loss of data do a test with a dummy file to ensure things work perfectly.
Robocopy [source][destination]   [file to be copied]
robocopy c:\local_c_folder  \\PC_network\shared_folder   file_to_be_copied_xx.txt
The command will be completed successfully provided the network access right has no issues.

Robocopy works quite good on large files. A simple copy or xcopy command will also work but the speed might vary.

Robocopy is free it can be accessed from command line. No need to install the resource kit tool if the operating system is Windows 7 or newer version.

Copy files with selected file extension using PowerShell and Robocopy:

$extension = ('.pdf', '.jpg', '.txt')

WMIC List printers

WMIC comes handy if you are a command line junkie.

To list printers via command line type:

wmic printer get name  = = = this will list all the printers installed on a workstation

To list the printer name and the port name of the printers, type this command:

wmic printer get name, portname

Type this command below to list the printer drivers:

wmic printer get name, drivername

To get the device id:

You can deploy a batch file startup script to check which printer is installed on the computers and redirect the output to a shared folder.

PowerShell can also be used in conjunction with WMIC command:

Linux Android App cheat sheet:

WMIC get computer name

WMIC get computer model, manufacturer, computer name and  username.
WMIC is a command-line tool and that can generate information about computer model, its manufacturer, its username and other informations depending on the parameters provided.
Why would you need a command line tool if there’s a GUI to check?
If you have 20 or 100 computers, or even more. It’s quite a big task just checking the GUI to check the computer model and username.
If you have remote computers, you need to delegate someone in the remote office or location to check.
Or you can just write a batch file or script to automate the task.
Here’s the code below on how get computer model, manufacturer and the username.
Open an elevated command prompt and type:
wmic computersystem get "Model","Manufacturer", "Name", "UserName"
Just copy and paste the code above, the word “computersystem” does not need to be change to a computer name.
A sample output below will be generated if the co…
