Hi,

I've a portable computer on which windows xp prof. is installed.
I need to use this computer on 2 network domains (seperately)
(I've 2 locations to work for, each one has its own network domain)

Is it possible to create profiles so when I'm at one location I can select a
profile
(which has its correct specifications defined like network; printers; ...)
and another
profile when I'm at the other location.
Now I've to change the specifications each time when at a certain location.

Thanks in advance.

B.M.

You can create an alternate network configuration. Go to the TCP/IP
properties of the network adapter you are using and you'll see the
Alternate Configuration tab.
