     Well, Windows doesn't even do ifconfig. The (more-or-less)  
equivalent command is ipconfig, except that it has no generic names  
for network interfaces. What that means, is that instead of eth0 (or  
en0, or whatever), it uses the full name of your NIC -- which  
effectively means that the output differs from one machine to  
another. Good luck with this one :D
