Save the network interface info into a text file, so that you can re-apply it later

netsh interface ip dump > current-interfaces.txt
On Windows 2000 or newer, you can use the command line to save the current network interface info. You can then edit the text file and re-apply it using the netsh -f command (or netsh exec). Keep a bunch of text files around to quickly switch connection info without using extra software. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsh http://support.microsoft.com/kb/242468 http://thelazyadmin.com/blogs/thelazyadmin/archive/2005/04/04/Using-Netsh-to-Manage-Network-Interfaces-Part-2.aspx

  • I like man pages, and I like using `less(1)` as my pager. However, most GNU software keeps the manual in the 'GNU Texinfo' format, and I'm not a fan of the info(1) interface. Just give me less. This command will print out the info(1) pages, using the familiar interface of less! Show Sample Output

  • This is useful when the local machine where you need to do the packet capture with tcpdump doesn?t have enough room to save the file, where as your remote host does tcpdump -i eth0 -w - | ssh savelocation.com -c arcfour,blowfish-cbc -C -p 50005 "cat - > /tmp/eth0.pcap" Your @ PC1 doing a tcpdump of PC1s eth0 interface and its going to save the output @ PC2 who is called save.location.com to a file /tmp/ppp1-to-me.pcap.gz again on PC2 More info @: http://www.kossboss.com/linuxtcpdump1 Show Sample Output

  • The example command deletes all aliases for network interface 'em0' assuming that the aliases have netmask of 255.255.255.255 and the master IP has some other netmask (such as 255.255.255.0). See here -> http://my.galagzee.com/2009/07/22/deleting-all-network-interface-aliases/ for more on the rationale of this command.
