I have a simple request
Hello people...Listen up...I clearly respect the computer savvy individual and my request is a simple one...I am not a netwerk admin so flamers keep it shut aight...I fianlly have access to a admin box at my other job...I am looking for just simple suggestions as to what exactly to explore on this netwerk as I am interested in expanding my knowledge of netwerks...I am not looking to *hack* and Im not interested in messing up any info that they have on the system.Im just looking for starting points for exploration and things that an admin should look for and at on a day to day basis...There was a post about sending messages to all the boxes on the netwerk...(that info again would be handy if somebody can post please)...Info such as that and any other insightful info that could be passed would be greatly appreciated...thanks
btw the netwerk box is running windoze professional 2000 nt and the other boxes are running windoze98

create a program that organizes the server. It's not that hard.
Things you want to look for are the logs, monitored downloaded files. Lot's of times a keylogger will be installed look for that and see if User activity like who logged into the system is on or not. Transfer all important documents to a floppy. And change the system date that way you won't get busted. Change it to like 4/20/01 lol. Since you have admin rights. If you want to send a message you can edit the pop=up menu when a user logs onto the system. There should be a menu in the control pannel that will allow you to do it.

oh yeah.. about sending a msg to all of da boxes in the network.. u dun hafta be admin to do that..
all u hafta do is go to the command prompt and type:
net send <location> <message>
example would be
net send bljlab1 hello!
bljlab1 is the Block J Laboratory of my school.. so every computers in Block J will have a window popping up on their screens saying "hello". and trust me.. they cant ignore the msg.. to resume normal activity.. they hafta press the "OK" button..

This works on NT machines, just because I've done it before on them. But I'm not sure if it works on Win2k Pro. Try using Nbtstat on remote machines on the LAN.

I don't believe hyper terminal is like pc anywhere - terminal services is like pc anywhere.
u can also use Hyper Terminal..that proggy is like PC Anywhere and it is already installed in your box by default..

great for you... just be sure not to make that box miserable. and if you, can you make your typing more clearly... many of our folks here cannot read in shortcuts! but who cares, right?
and if you want to make exploration on the network. just read some stuff don't make others do things for you.
