    Is there an equivalent the the Windows command "ipconfig /registerdns" for Mac OS X?

    There's "ifconfig". I don't know if it does exactly what you want?

    The functions of ipconfig and registerdns are performed by ifconfig, route, and possibly arp under OS X.

    The OS X commands give you more flexibility than the Windows commands. For example, I have not heard of a mechanism for directly altering the arp table under Windows.
