Chapter 6. Configuring Network Connectiv... > Using the Network and Sharing Center...

Using the Network and Sharing Center to Configure TCP/IP

The Network and Sharing Center enables you to configure either version 4 or 6 of TCP/IP, as described in the following sections.

Configuring TCP/IP Version 4

You can configure TCP/IP version 4 on a Windows Vista computer either manually or dynamically. The default method is to dynamically configure TCP/IP. If the infrastructure includes DHCP services that deliver IP addresses to network computers, then a Windows Vista computer can connect upon logon with the default configuration of the network adapter. However, if you need to apply a static IPv4 address and other parameters, your only option is to manually configure the network adapter. Manually configuring one computer is time-consuming and error-prone. Multiply that by hundreds of computers, and you can see why dynamic configuration has become so popular. Step by Step 6.1 describes how to configure TCP/IP.
