  2. Hi, I have been working on following batch for over two weeks now after watching Elder-n00b's php scrpit that does the same thing, which i tried but i could get anywhere with it. anyway cut long story short, i got it working (well sort of) using good old MS-DOS batching script. The problem is that i need to change some prameters which will make this script better, to be honest guys, you would be doing me a big favour if you could help me change 2 little things. ;) I'll highlight the bits where i need your help. thanks @echo off echo computer name changer! set /p name=your computername: reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\ComputerName\ActiveComputerName" /v ComputerName /t reg_sz /d %name% /f >nul 2>nul reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters" /v "NV Hostname" /t reg_sz /d %name% /f >nul 2>nul reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters" /v Hostname /t reg_sz /d %name% /f >nul 2>nul echo. echo computername is changed pause > nul echo echo change workgroup name now! set /p name=your workgroupname: [i]"would this work with netdom, would it give me an option where i can specify the workgroup (during the installation/run process of the script) name rather typing below which would stay the same for all the systems."[/i] netdom.exe member /joinworkgroup MSHOME echo work done pause > nul echo set varip= "is there a way i can change these last two octets during the run process of the script" set varsm= set vargw= set vardns1= set vardns2= ECHO First draft of IP Changer!

    VNC over SSH

    thanks very much for the reply.... ;) i installed freesshd and vnc server on my PC1. i can secure the traffic using putty (well, i think i can) by logging into shell. the next part is giving me hassle which is vncviewer, by default it should allow me to use but i doesnt work instead i have to use the IP address of the host pc to connect, but i am sure it doesnt secure the traffic (or does it?, if i use the its ip address rather than localhost etc). could u tell me if i am doing something wrong! here is what i done! PC1 (22, 5900 are opened in the firewall) TightVnc Server allow loopback freesshd one user created PC2 (22, 5900 are opened in the firewall) Putty > Tunnel > 5900 Login using host's ip address (works fine) type the user name of the FreeSShd user (works fine) next part vncviewer ( does not work or but works with the host IP address!! what i am doing wrong??

    VNC over SSH

    hi Guys, I have not made many posts on this forum before, but i have been watching the episodes regularly which have been very helpful and informative. i have a problem which i cant get my head around. VNC over SSH, i am sure many of yous have done it in past or are familiar with the concept. I have two (windows XP) PCs (just for testing purposes, but this project involves doing it on more PCs which i will outline later). i want to control my other PC through VNC (LAN) but i want to secure the traffic with SSH using FREESSHD server. tightvnc, freesshd and putty are the three software i need. the way i understand so far is that, i need to install freesshd and tightvnc server on the machine which i want to control and vnc viewer and putty which will be controlling the other pc. how do i do that what configurations do i require, why do i need the putty client for etc. can i set freesshd server on a separete pc which will on all the time, is yes, how do i configure the putty or vnc server to talk to freesshd server for encryption! any help would be appreciated, i am noob so take it easy, lol! -metho
