  • This command uses nmap to perform reverse DNS lookups on a subnet. It produces a list of IP addresses with the corresponding PTR record for a given subnet. You can enter the subnet in CDIR notation (i.e. /24 for a Class C)). You could add "--dns-servers x.x.x.x" after the "-sL" if you need the lookups to be performed on a specific DNS server. On some installations nmap needs sudo I believe. Also I hope awk is standard on most distros. Show Sample Output


    4
    nmap -R -sL 209.85.229.99/27 | awk '{if($3=="not")print"("$2") no PTR";else print$3" is "$2}' | grep '('

  • Displays live hosts on the same network as the local machine with their hostnames and IP addresses. This command is IPv6 and multiple network adapter safe and does not rely on awk or sed, however it requires the "nmap" package installed. Might not work on OSX. Example alias for shell startup file: alias livehosts='nmap -sP "$(ip -4 -o route get 1 | cut -d " " -f 7)"/24 | grep report | cut -d " " -f 5-' Show Sample Output


    -2
    nmap -sP "$(ip -4 -o route get 1 | cut -d ' ' -f 7)"/24 | grep report | cut -d ' ' -f 5-

Check These Out

Check your unread Gmail from the command line
notice what happens when there is more than one unread message in a thread... also people please dont hardcode the password when you use curl. Leave it out and curl will ask you when it runs. Please...?

Randomly run command
Randomly decide whether to run a command, or fail. It's useful for testing purposes. . Usage: ran PERCENTAGE COMMAND [ARGS] Note: In this version the percentage is required. . This is like @sesom42 and @snipertyler's commands but in a USABLE form. . e.g. In your complicated shell script, put "ran 99" before a crucial component. Now, it will fail 1% of the time allowing you to test the failure code-path. $ ran 99 my_complex_program arg1 arg2

Write comments to your history.
A null operation with the name 'comment', allowing comments to be written to HISTFILE. Prepending '#' to a command will *not* write the command to the history file, although it will be available for the current session, thus '#' is not useful for keeping track of comments past the current session.

Find ASCII files and extract IP addresses

Use Linux coding style in C program
put "-linux" option into $HOME/.indent.pro to make it default

check open ports without netstat or lsof

Google text-to-speech in mp3 format
Usage: t2s 'How are you?' Nice because it automatically names the mp3 file up to 15 characters Modified (uses bash manip instead of tr) t2s() { wget -q -U Mozilla -O $(cut -b 1-15

generate iso

list block devices
Shows all block devices in a tree with descruptions of what they are.

check the filesystem and use a progress bar
if you happen to start with out the -C switch then you a killall -USR1 e2fsck
