Control your PCs through (DOS)

 Most times we find it difficult to understand the usefulness of Dos Command Prompt in our PCs, We also fail to understand that Command prompt is a basic part of our Computer and we are suppose to gain Average or maximum knowledge on how it operates and it's functions. You can possible gain total control of your PCs just by typing little commends in that small Dos Command prompt Window. (Now that Easy)

This tutorial unveils some of the Tips and Tricks that we need to know in other to gain absolute control of our PCs Using Dos Command Prompt.

HOW IT WORKS


QUICKLY SHUT DOWN OR RESTART ANOTHER COMPUTER USING DOS

Open Dos Command Prompt

You can Shut down or Restart another computer on your network, all from your computer's Command Prompt.

The easiest way to Shut down a computer remotely is to enter this command in Dos Shutdown /i from the Command Prompt it will open the Shutdown Dialog, Just enter the name of the remote computer (which you can get by "Right clicking on "My Computer > Properties> Computer Name), choose what you want to do (Restart or Shutdown), select some other options and then click OK.

VIEW YOUR COMPUTER NETWORK INFORMATION

Maybe just for your own information, but certainly when you're troubleshooting a network or Internet problem, you'll probably at some point need to know details about your computer's network connection.

Everything you'd want to know about your network connection is available somewhere in the Control Panel in Windows, but it's much easier to find, and much better organized, in the results from the ipconfig command.

Open Command Prompt and type in ipconfig /all. What displays on screen next is everything important about your network connection: your IP address, hostname, DHCP server, DNS information, and much, much more.

 

FIND A WEBSITE'S IP ADDRESS

Like to know the IP address of a website? There are a few different commands you can use to find it.

Let's use the nslookup command to find the IP address of  facebook.com. Just execute nslookup facebook.com and view the result. Make sure you don't confuse any private IP addresses that also show up in the nslookup results alongside facebook.com's public IP address.

Another way to find a site's IP address is to use the ping command. Execute ping facebook.com and then look at the IP address between the brackets in the results shown.

You should have a result as these [173.252.110.27]

 

WATCH STAR WARS EPISODE IV

 you can watch an ASCII version of the full Star Wars Episode IV movie right in the Command Prompt window!

Just open Command Prompt and execute telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl. The movie will start immediately. This isn't a terribly productive use of the Command Prompt, nor is it really a trick of the Command Prompt or any command, but it sure is fun!
