|As I have stated you cannot do an IPconfig /all on a real time OS, you do a command called NC, this tells you all the IP information IP, subnet default gateway and DNS as I stated the 10.10.10.2 REAL TIme OS has a subnet of 255.255.0.0, no gateway and no DNS.|
the computer that has the 10.10.10.1 and the 172.X.X.X for IP Config all has the following
10.10.10.1 has subnet of 255.255.0.0 not default gateway and no default DNS
172.X.X.X is set to DHCP in which has a subnet 255.255.0.0 and no gateway and no DNS, the IP gets pulled of another server.
So when you state it's like pulling teeth, the above information was giving to you. I asked you how to tell if it is in bridge mode, you have yet answered that question
