Many people still use telnet (client) for checking if port is open on remote host.
The Powershell cmdlet Test-NetConnection is the new and improved tool for this and by creating a function alias in your profile settings you can have it easily available at any time without remembering the syntax.
I just spent a ridiculous amount of time figuring out how to change default “Resize mode” for all VMs because it was too much work do it for every single RDP/VM connection. Old google results came up with various ways for setting a global setting, but it was nowhere to be found in RoyalTS version 4. So here’s another solution:
1) Open the folder in Dashboard view
2) Mark all of the VMs (CTRL+A if you will)
3) Right-click and choose Properties
4) Go to Display Options -> Bulk Edit -> Resize Mode
The Resize mode is now unlocked and will be changed for all the selected VMs
It’s actually really simple, but you’ll need administrator access on the domain controller in order to read the security event log so you might have to consult upper sys admins.
It seems to not want to filter/sort by username though so if you’re managing a huge enterprise with thousands of users this could be a bit tedious. On the other side, if that’s the case I suppose you already have better tools for the job.
Anyway, all invalid login attempts are logged as event id 4776 (Credential Validation).
Open Event Viewer and connect to domain controller
Go to Windows Logs -> Security
Click on Filter Current Log... in the right navigation menu
Enter 4776 into the input field which says <All Event IDs>
Browse through the invalid login attempts till you find the one which belongs to your user and look in the description text field where it says “Source Workstation: hostname”
NiceHash has been down since this morning and people are beginning to go crazy. Rumours regarding a possible hacking incident has been increasing on /r/NiceHash after they noticed a bitcoin wallet has received over 4700 BTC from one of NiceHash’ wallets.
NiceHash reports on their twitter account they are down for maintenance. No official statement regarding the hacking accusations have been addressed so far.
NiceHash is a marketplace where miners sell processing capacity for mining Altcoins (alternative cryptocurrency coins).
Experienced miners who have already started mining for other pools have statet that their profits have increased by x4-x5 because a lot of the NiceHash “miner-farms” are currently offline and driving the prices up.

AFAIK there is no command in Windows to quickly see the uptime. However, there are several commands to get the last boot time, although you’ll have to do a quick calculation if you need the uptime in days. The easiest/fastest method is to use net stats.
Run command: net stats srv
C:\Users\kek>net stats srv
