Linux Network Testing

Tracert like in windows wit ICMP Echo request
#traceroute –I

Show Routing Table
# nestat –nr
# route –n

Connection Statistic
# nestat –i
# mii-diag

Network Connections and Bind Ports
# netstat –a

Check DNS Settings
# dig
# dig mx
# nslookup

I had to install the packages first to use this commands:
# apt-get install dnsutils

It is a very useful Network Sniffer for Linux. But first you need to install it:
# apt-get install tcpdump

# tcpdump –nli eth0 port 80
# tcpdump –nli eth0 host and port 80
# tcpdump –nli eth0 host and not port 22
# tcpdump –nli eth0 src host and not port 22

Switch on and Off Monitor from cmd

We have a monitor at our work which we use to monitor our company’s state. But how lazy I am I was looking for a quick solution to switch off and on this screen. So I don’t need to do this task anymore each morning;-) I did some research on the net but didn’t found a solution to do it with the Windows inbuilt functions. Then I discovered this great command prompt tool: Nircmd. It offers a lot of other functions. Just copy it into your Windows System 32 folder and you can simply run the command “nircmd monitor off” to switch off your screen. I used Windows Task Planer to run it each morning (switch on) and evening (switch off). Check out this great tool which offers heaps of other functions:
