View Full Version : Command Prompt Problems
11-14-2002, 09:18 AM
I'm running Windows 2000. When I go to a command prompt it won't recognize commands that it should, such as "ipconfig" and "ping". I figure I'm gonna need to wipeout the OS and do a fresh install. Before I do that, does anybody have any better suggestions?

Check your PATH enviroment variable. Make sure it's points to the location those programs are located on your system. (Do a "find" for them.)
You can also just "CD" into that location and run the programs from there.
As a last check make sure you have the rights needed to access those programs.
Good Luck :)

Huh? I'm not trying to run any programs from the command prompt, just trying to use commands such as ping and ipconfig. I apologize, can you please explain what you mean. Thanks brotha.

Ping and ipconfig are programs!!!!!!
I do hope you know that :)
EDIT I'm going to have to mail this one in to my favorite network mag. It just too classic :D

AAAAhhhhh..come on now. I'm just kidding you. :D
As for your terminal server problem, did any of the MSKB article apply to your situation?

I know. For some reason when you said programs I was think'n applications. My fault.
As for that article, it says to apply the latest service pack. I may be wrong, but I figured since its only this user that has these rights then it must be a configuration issue. I did make a few changes and I haven't had a chance to see if they solved the problem since the user hasn't been in yet. I don't know her password and I don't want to change it on her.
I do have an issue that I have to solve today that I would love some help from you. I'll start a new thread called "VPN issue"
