    For what type of device? Is it on a windows box or a linux box?

    ipconfig is usually used for windows to check the ip address as well the gateway info of the machine. ipconfig /all

    route print is also used to check the routing table on a windows box.

    This differs from linux as well as other devices.

    Thank you for your prompt reply

    This question is from a prep exam. It says no type of OS. I am originally Linux oriented so chose ROUTE. This is ported into W2K, as you know? Very simple and straight forward to see and set route.

    Auch! Right answer is IPCONFIG. Why, why, why? I don't know. Probably, the author takes side with Bill Gates.

    I see a couple of similar cases in that exam. I should better be WINDOZ oriented that I have tried to help.

    With best regards
