You would use netsh http when modifying the configuration of http.sys, which is totally different from the hosts file, working on a much lower level of Windows. This level is the one that handles the running of an HTTP server locally in your computer, so is concerned with requests coming into your computer, rather than the ones going out to the Internet. ...

Intro Considerations Before implementing any of this, it would be really helpful to know just what routing actually does. Routing doesn't change network addresses. (Well, NAT does. And NAT can be performed while routing gets applied. However, if you want to learn how to do something, you should be trying to keep things simple. And it is best to think ...

You could reset your password by setting the whole network up again ie (via here): netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=rambo key=rambo123 keyUsage=persistent or netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=rambo key=rambo123 keyUsage=temporary Although, if you've forgotten your password, all you need to do is (via here): netsh wlan show ...

I've been looking for the same thing for a while now, unfortunately I can't seem to find anything in the netsh utility to do this. The best solution I was able to come up with was to disable then re-enable the interface through the netsh commands. There's a small delay (1-2 seconds) after enabling the interface where it won't list any networks, but that ...

pkgmgr is now replaced by dism. Install telnet from command line (run it as administrator): dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:TelnetClient Then you can test TCP connection by: telnet example.com 80

Just use Putty it's tiny (and has a portable app version). It lets you specify port and can use telnet which is a TCP connection. It also has other useful functions like serial connections (no hyper terminal in Windows 7), SSH, And Rlogin. It even has a RAW function that lets establish RAW TCP connections. Also just so your aware: Telnet is included in XP, ...

Had the same problem. Tried everything - updating Intel 5100 Wifi drivers, updating Windows 7, uninstalled and reinstalled devices and so on. It turned out that the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter wasn't working. To make sure it's working do the following: Open an elevated Command Prompt window Type: netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow

I had the same problem like you and finally found a solution: The Problem is, that you need a special ad-hoc profile to connect to the network. For some weird reason you can't do that via gui anymore, but you can work direct with netsh wlan: Create a new profile via gui (new connection in the nework center) Choose "connect manual with a network" Type in ...

Comma is a special character for PowerShell. In your case it is interpreted as a binary array operator. It creates array with two elements blockinboundalways and allowoutbound. PowerShell below v5 will separate array elements with space when array passed to native applications. The resulting command line passed to netsh will be following: netsh advfirewall ...

It seems your winsock is corrupted. A solution would be to log into another healthy PC and export the winsock and winsock2 registry keys only from HKLM/System/CurrentControlSet/Services to a flash drive, import them to your local registry, reboot your machine. Else copy the winsock.dll files from another healthy PC. The DLL is be located at: c:/WINNT/...

Below is a batch script that will toggle the state of Wi-Fi either ON or OFF to the opposite state it in when it runs. This uses ms-settings:network-wifi to open the Wi-Fi Settings screen, and then it presses the space key one time using sendkeys to toggle. This method builds a dynamic vb script with a batch script and then executes the vb script with ...

I’m not sure but I guess you use PowerShell to loop over the array $IPArray and want to add every IP in this array to be the Remote IP of the firewall rule Block External IP’s. If this is correct, the problem is that netsh does not have the option to add an IP, any set remoteip= command overwrites the previous entry. Therefore you overwrite the remote IP ...

Leaving the existing IP Address and Subnet Mask is okay, because these will definitely be overwritten every time. Since you're overwriting the IP and Subnet Mask anyway, just use netsh to delete the gateway in the same step. e.g.: netsh interface ipv4 set address "Local Area Connection" static 192.168.1.100 255.255.255.0 none Here, you place none where ...

By design, turning off a NIC is disallowed when done remotely. Running with Psexec essentially runs the command as a local user, to bypass this restriction. psexec.exe \remotecomputer netsh interface set interface "interfacename" disabled If you need credentials: psexec.exe \remotecomputer -u username -p password netsh interface set interface "...

The key of the hosted network can be changed using this command: netsh wlan set hostednetwork key=yourkey keyusage=temporary|persistent See Netsh Commands for Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) in Windows Server 2008 R2.

I was looking for an answer to this myself when I found your question. After reading the comments in harrymc's answer, I decided to test some things out myself. I found one way that was surprisingly simple, yet did exactly what you wanted: netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=<mySSID> key= That command is no mistake, you just don't add ...

The networks are updated only when a scan is completed by your WiFi card. The NETSH command does not request a scan; it only displays the cached results of the last scan. Opening the Windows network list from the taskbar updates the results because the taskbar network tool happens to request a scan when it's opened. There is no NETSH command to request a ...

Nope, because the Firewall service isn't running. Enable it, add the rules with netsh, and then disable it when done. Or add via the registry as you have suggested. Either way should be pretty painless to repeat once you've scripted it once.

netsh firewall requires the Windows Firewall service, SharedAccess, to be running. To remotely enable Remote Desktop, you'll need to edit the registry: reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server" /v "fDenyTSConnections" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 and reboot (shutdown -r -t 0). Afterwards, use qwinsta or netstat to verify.

I'm afraid, according to the About the Wireless Hosted Network on Microsoft Dev center, this is not possible. Relevant excerpt: To provide protection for the wireless communications between the computer hosting SoftAP and the devices connecting to the SoftAP, the wireless Hosted Network requires that all devices connected use the WPA2-PSK/AES cipher ...

The easiest way to accomplish this is to just check that little box at the bottom 'Treat all future networks that I connect to as public, and don't ask me again.' You can also get to this screen from the 'Network and Sharing Center' as shown from the screenshot below. This solution is much less complicated than trying to cook up a script to do it.
