It may depend on what one wants. :-) Then again, the control panel
isn't automatable; presumably, ipconfig is, to some extent.
(Then again, I'm not that familiar with VBScript. Presumably
VBScript can put arbitrary values into Windows controls -- although
why anyone would want to do the equivalent in Linux when one
can simply run the ifconfig command directly is beyond me.)
