    Microsoft Windows XP Professional

    We can change IP address settings by using following dialogs:
    "My Network Places" Window->Properties
    "Network Connections" Window->Local Area Connection
    "Local Area Connection Status" Window->General->Properties
    "Local Area Connection Properties" Window->General->Internet
    Protocol (TCP/IP)
    "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties" Window->General->Use
    the following IP address (IP address, Subnet mask, Default gateway).

    But that is executed statically (not at runtime).

    We need to do the same thing at runtime within program (C++, C#).
    Is there any API that enables to do that?

    Should have asked in a programming group.

    You never learn do you, after all the help you expect / get how about
    handing out free copies of the software you develop.

    Registry, if that doesn't help , , use some suitable keywords, the 1st hit I see.

    Changing TCP/IP settings - .NET C# Network Programming:

    MS MSDN site, look for the .NET Framework classes for the oddly enough
    Network functions. Read the documentation.
