Configuring When DHCP is on the Same Server

Configuring When DHCP is on the Same Server The method of communication between the booting client and the server uses data fields (known as options) in DHCP packets. The Windows Deployment Services solution for booting over the network works well in many configurations. It works well when Windows Deployment Services is located on the same physical computer or on a different physical computer than the DHCP server. However, the default installation is that Windows Deployment Services and a DCHP server (Microsoft or non-Microsoft) are located on different physical computers. In this scenario, no additional configuration steps are required for interoperability … Continue reading Configuring When DHCP is on the Same Server

Changing local admin password?

Changing local admin password? I just find a good method to change the local admin password of client PC remotely from MCPMAG. By using this method, you don’t need to put the new password in script in order to make it work.

The tool will also report successes and failures of changed passwords, and allows you to run a single command against a list of computers. Since the password is just included … Continue reading Changing local admin password?

HyperTerminal for Vista

Microsoft has removed HyperTerminal from Windows Vista, if you need to connect to a Cisco router through a local COM port, you can get HyperTerminal from Hilgraeve, the company that Microsoft licensed the application through. You could also use the old XP Hyper terminal. Just extract two files hypertrm.dll and hypertrm.exe. You can put them anywhere on the disk, no installation required. Of course, for that you need to have XP to extract files from. Besides, puTTY and SecureCRT are great too! I would prefer puTTY as it is FREE! :-pPuTTY can now connect to local serial ports as well as making … Continue reading HyperTerminal for Vista
