Useful IT-support tools, tips and command promt commands

Sorry for not updating the blog for a very long time, because of the internship and not having enough time. Below I have posted a few useful commands, tips and tools to use that I have learned for example if you are a sales manager and need to keep your wireless printer online (Some printers have so called “Eco” mode or in another words it, goes on a sleep mode), because some workers might not have the nerves to connect to this printer every time.

The easier way is to use your router and do some configuration to the box but that is a bit more advanced and risky if you are not specialized in the field. You can change your routers settings by plugging the network cable to your computer and just type in the IP address of this router to your browser.

The first command is

ping -t ipAddress

The output should be something like in the picture

output1

What is happening that we are keeping the printer online for the whole day. To do this you will need to have the pinging computer to be online all the time. Another useful command is to use netstat to see what programs are using what ports, if for example you have two simultaneously run programs that use the same port.

If you want for example to block some websites, you have to do the following, but as I have learned in my internship the following is insufficient. Every day you will have a new proxy site and if you do not use a commercial product/company you will have to update this blocklist (router or computer level). If you are using the blocklist on the computer level, please separate the user side from the admin so no one can make any changes to the hosts file.

1. Open your notepad as and administrator i.e. “Run as administrator”.2. Open the hosts file in the Windows –> System32 –> drivers –> etc.
3. Add the IP address and the name of the site. Or just the whole address of the site as in the below block example list.
