    Windows fix all

    Hey all,

    Does anyone know of a command or utility in xp that runs a series of flushes, release/renews, etc, for connectivity problems. I seem to remember there being something like this, but I can't be sure. Any replies are appriciated!

    Thanks,
    Hex

    from a cmd line you can run ipconfig /flushdns, ipconfig /release, ipconfig /renew. for all the associated commands, ipconfig /?

    I don't believe that the repair option will flush the dns cache...
