Switching from Public to Private network via PowerShell

Posted by essjae on February 11, 2016

Here’s a quick way to get rid of the “public” network on Windows and switch it to a more usable private network type.

    1. Open a PowerShell Window.
    2. Get the list of network profiles on the system.  Note the InterfaceIndex number listed, you’ll need it for the final step.
      Get-NetConnectionProfile
    3. Change the network interface to private, use the network interface index number from the previous command.
Set-NetConnectionProfile -InterfaceIndex xx -NetworkCategory Private

TCP Tools: TCPing and Advanced IP Scanner

Posted by essjae on April 24, 2012

tcping.exe – ping over a tcp connection

tcping.exe is a small console application that operates similarly to ‘ping’, however it works over a tcp port. Not a terribly interesting concept, but I had trouble finding a windows utility to do this that I was happy with. There are now several different implementions of this floating around, written independently by different people. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

Update: tcping now also speaks http. If the ‘-h’ flag is used, tcping will connect and attempt to download the given url over http in addition to opening the port.
