    Lightbulb Tweaks Tips and Tricks

    I bet they have red carpeted floors and live
    dancers in that antionline addicts forum!

    But i wanted to start a new thread on the
    tweaks, tricks, and tips thing.
    I know i could use allot of all three

    This is for windows xp home:

    TIP: need temporary admin. priveledge?
    In Start menu select Run
    2. enter: "control userpasswords2"
    3. Go to Advanced tab
    4. Select Manage Passwords Button
    5. Add or Remove items at will

    TRICK:use your machine as a port scanner

    You can use NMap to port scan the host with the following command line:

    nmap -g67 -P0 -p130-140 -sU 192.168.128.88

    (Notice the -g67 which specifies source port).

    TCP Scan:
    You can use NMap to port scan the host with the following command line:

    nmap -g67 -P0 -p130-140 -sS 192.168.128.88

    (Notice the -g67 which specifies source port



    TWEAK: Add things to add remove programs
    find sysoc.inf (you might have to enable
    "show hidden files" and "show hidden/protected
    system folders" in explorer) and open it in notepad
    replace all ",hide" with "," (both with out quotes)
    which is easiest to do with the replace
    all command under edit
    then in add/remove programs under add/remove
    windows compnents and whole new list of things
    to uninstall and add are now visable.

    Wouldn't you like to know Did you know that JP has set up a live video chat on this system also? We also have a dedicated link to ....umm, I'm not supposed to tell. You will just have to wait and find out. BTW, there is talk about raising the minimum posts to 500.

    BTW...nmap isn't a trick tweak or even a tip. It is a program written for unix and ported for scipt kiddies.

    souleman... Were you about to reveal our secret?
    Shame on you for even trying to tell him

    BTW Avid, You forgot the velvet rope.... And I also agree with souleman about raising the limit... Hmmmm 650 posts sounds reasonable

    And shame, shame on you Souleman, that was a close one. hehehehe

    I think you guy's forgot to leave a tweak,tip,or trick!

    And hey! Serious the things im learning that
    this command prompt, and telnet thing
    especially at fedworld.gov but the nmap thing
    is a trick to me

    To display the NetBIOS name table of the remote computer assigned the IP address of 10.0.0.99, type:

    nbtstat -A 10.0.0.99

    To display the NetBIOS name table of the local computer, type:

    nbtstat -n

    To display the contents of the local computer NetBIOS name cache, type:

    nbtstat -c

    To purge the NetBIOS name cache and reload the #PRE-tagged entries in the local Lmhosts file, type:

    nbtstat -R

    To release the NetBIOS names registered with the WINS server and re-register them, type:

    nbtstat -RR

    To display NetBIOS session statistics by IP address every five seconds, type:

    nbtstat -S 5

    too cool

    My tip isn't really a tip or trick either - it's the command 'reset' in linux.

    Every once in a while, while searching through my files for something specific, I'll accidentally cat the wrong file and send binary data streaming to the screen. Sometimes it exits gracefully, but other times it screws up the display so bad that even the prompt displays as garbage. For nearly two years, the only solution I knew for this problem was to log out and log back in. Even the "experts" I knew did the same thing, so I figured it was just a penalty for my stupid act of catting a binary file. Then I found the reset command. It resets your current terminal and removes the damage you caused by catting the file without forcing you to log out.

    While I'm sure this probably isn't anything new to a lot of you, I thought it was very cool and no one ever told me it existed, so I thought I'd pass it on.
