On a Windows system, use the tracert command. On Linux and Mac OS systems, use the traceroute command. nslookup nslookup resolves (looks up) the IP address of the specified hostname. It also displays additional name resolution information, such as the DNS server used for the lookup request. netstat netstat displays the following IP-related statistics: Current connections Incoming and outgoing connections Active sessions, ports, and sockets The local routing table nbtstat nbtstat is used to diagnose issues regarding NetBIOS over TCP/IP. The following options can be used with nbtstat : -c Displays the NetBIOS cache of remote machine names and their IP addresses. -n Displays NetBIOS names that have been registered on the local system. -r Displays names resolved by broadcast and via WINS. -R Clears and then reloads the remote cache name table. -S Displays current NETBIOS sessions with the destination IP addresses. -s Displays current NETBIOS sessions by NETBIOS names. Telnet The telnet utility is used for remote server management. The Telnet protocol must be running and configured on the remote server in order for a Telnet session to be established. By default, Telnet does not encrypt transmissions (they are sent as clear text). Telnet is mostly used by specialized industrial and scientific devices. In addition to sending transmissions in clear text, there are several well-known vulnerabilities in the Telnet protocol.

Because of this, Telnet should not be used when sending sensitive information. SSH Similar to Telnet, the SSH utility is used for remote server management; however, SSH encrypts all communications and is much more secure. SSH can be used to remotely log onto a server and complete configuration tasks. In order to establish an SSH session, the server must have the SSH process running and configured to allow remote connections. Use the following syntax to establishing an SSH connection: ssh [username] @ [server_address] Implementing HomeGroups 0:00-0:06 In this demonstration, we're going to talk about home group networking. Creating a HomeGroup 0:07-1:54 HomeGroups are really interesting. They basically allow multiple computers on the same network segment to share information back and forth with each other, such as, documents, music files, and printers, and so on. Now, back in the old days of Windows, you basically had two options for accomplishing this. One was to set up a domain, and the other was to set up a work group. Domains required you to set up a domain controller, on a Windows' server, required more hardware, and quite a bit more complex to set up. Work groups are very easy to set up, but they required a lot of maintenance because you basically had to have the same user accounts with the exact same passwords configured on every system within the work group, otherwise connecting to shared resources was a little bit challenging for the end user.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
