The report mode of mtr produces a text formated result of the mtr run using the number of ping cycles stated by the command. This text file could then be attached to an email with ease.
I use this also without the ">" portion when writing email from within mutt using VI from the command mode with ":r !mtr --report --report-cycles 10
Replace "en1" with your network interface (on OS X, usually en0, en1, eth0, etc..)
Waiting for your server to finish rebooting? Issue the command above and you will hear a beep when it comes online. The -i 60 flag tells ping to wait for 60 seconds between ping, putting less strain on your system. Vary it to your need. The -a flag tells ping to include an audible bell in the output when a package is received (that is, when your server comes online).
On Linux and Mac systems (I have not tested with other Unix systems), the ping command will keep on pinging until the user interrupts it with Ctrl+C. On Windows system, ping will execute for a number of times then quit. The -c flag on Linux and Mac will make this happen
To connect to the shell run:
nc server.example.org 2000
Redirect the local port 2000 to the remote port 3000. The same but UDP:
nc -u -l -p 2000 -c "nc -u example.org 3000"
It may be used to "convert" TCP client to UDP server (or viceversa):
nc -l -p 2000 -c "nc -u example.org 3000"
Where < target > may be a single IP, a hostname or a subnet
-sS TCP SYN scanning (also known as half-open, or stealth scanning)
-P0 option allows you to switch off ICMP pings.
-sV option enables version detection
-O flag attempt to identify the remote operating system
-A option enables both OS fingerprinting and version detection
-v use -v twice for more verbosity.
nmap -sS -P0 -A -v < target >
-nohttpd don't run mini-httpd if VNC java applet is found
-name change the name of the desktop, it's passed to xstartup script via $VNCDESKTOP, run different set of apps acording the name.
-depth pixel depth in bits of the desktop, default is 16
-geometry size of the desktop, default is 1024x768
