Windows Network Information Gathering Lecture (part 2)

This lesson picks up from the previous lesson and focuses on the following tools in the Net suite:

  • Session: lists or disconnects sessions between the computer and others computers on the network and allows us to end a connection with a foreign computer.
  • Statistics: this displays the statistics log for the local workstation or server service
  • View: displays a list of resources being shared on a computer, a quick way to find out what’s being shared.
  • Start: lists running services

Participants also briefly learn about Windows Management Instrumentation (Wmic) which holds massive amounts of information but it best used by the technologically savvy.
