The following command does not display the correct state of the queried interface:

netsh routing ip show interface internal


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.


Windows 2000 includes the Netsh tool. This is a command-line utility that you can use to change some IP configuration information and retrieve diagnostic or current state information.

On a Windows 2000-based computer running Routing and Remote Access Services (RRAS) you can use either the RRAS interface or the Netsh tool to disable or enable routing interfaces. After you disable routing on an interface using either method, Netsh reports that routing is still enabled on the interface.
