Network Configuration

After you add the required networking components to your run-time image, build and deploy the image, you can connect it to the network. This section describes the different networking commands and utilities you can use on your run-time image.

By default, run-time images are configured to use DHCP. By adding support for the Net Shell (Netsh) command line utility, you can configure networking on your run-time image. In this context, networking includes setting a static IP address, configuring multiple network interfaces, or configuring routing.

Net Shell components are added to a configuration in Target Designer. After the run-time image is built and deployed, you can change the network settings on your target device.

For more information about using Netsh, see this Microsoft Web site.
