  • In the field, I needed to script a process to scan a specific vendor devices in the network. With the help of nmap, I got all the devices of that particular vendor, and started a scripted netcat session to download configuration files from a tftp server. This is the nmap loop (part of the script). You can however, add another pipe with grep to filter the vendor/manufacturer devices only. If want to check the whole script, check in http://pastebin.com/ju7h4Xf4 Show Sample Output

  • the middle command between the ; and ; is the vi commands that insert that line into the last line of the file, the esc with the carets is literally hitting the escape key, you have to have the smbfs package installed to do it, I use it to access my iTunes music on my mac from my linux PC's with amarok so I can play the music anywhere in the house. among other things, it allows you to access the files on that share from your computer anytime you're on that network.

  • Needed to get the Mac of various devices on a solaris box, but didn't have root. This command used awk to display the Network device, the IP, and the MAC a line at a time.
