This article describes how to locally configure Microsoft Windows 2000-based remote access servers or routers from the command prompt.


From a Microsoft Windows 2000-based computer, at the command prompt, type NetSh. This command-line utility (NetShell) is used to locally configure Windows 2000 remote access servers or routers. NetSh can use script files to automate configuration tasks. For information about the NetSh commands, at the command prompt, type NetSh.

NetSh replaces the Routemon command-line utility, which was originally supplied with Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS) for Windows NT 4.0. NetSh implements a superset of the Routemon commands.
