Joes DNS Correction (JDC)

Ever had this?
Your colleagues are connecting fine and your IT service desk say everything is functioning normally and it's just YOU!
Everyone else is ok it's just you! - IE cannot display webpage Everyone else is ok it's just you! - Doing MSDOS things

If you are on a network that frequently loses connection or simply forgets what intranet site you were trying to access and your usual solution is a reboot, then this tool may be for you.

In my environment, I am working with a Visual Studio 2008 IDE (Business Intelligence Development Studio - BIDS) along with Microsoft's Team Foundation Server (TFS). Sometimes I'll check out an item from TFS and before I get to update it, my connection will drop and my computer will say that it could not connect to either the TFS or my target deploy location.

I found a quicker fix than rebooting your computer which is to open a command prompt and to type "ipconfig /flushdns" then "ipconfig /registerdns" and the connections would have been restored. As I love automation and reducing processes to single-click fixes, I made this teeny tiny program to run the above commands and check the error levels.

1) Decompress to a folder of your choosing
2) Run the EXE (there is no install process, it should just start)
3) Done!

v1.0 (22/11/2011)
- Display internal and external IP address
- Display flushdns errorlevel
- Display registerdns errorlevel
- Change color to green if successful, red if failed.
