Inspecting the E-mail traffic of a Windows Server 2008 R2 [closed]

I have seen that the IP address of my mail server has added to blocked IP address list on http://psbl.org. I am using this server for personal use. So, it is not that much of an issue that I am, as a non IT pro, handling the server. I suspect that someone obtained the password of one of the e-mail addresses or my server got infected by a spamware. I am trying to find out […]

suggest a tool similar to tcpview

Can anyone suggest a tool for Windows similar to Sysinternals’ tcpview which monitor current all connections and also counts and shows traffic/speed? Asked by Dada You could do this with netmon but you’d probably have to script a count connection parser. Do you need the number of connections or the traffic? If you just want the number of connections you can get that from perfmon \tcpv4\connections established and tcpv6\connections established for bandwith used the formula […]

Where to get working Sysinternals tools for Windows 2000?

Yes, I know Windows 2000 will run end-of-life in this year, but we still have a lot of Windows 2000 boxes we try to migrate but no idea if all of them can be migrated this year… Recently I downloaded a new Sysinternals Suite (most recent file date 2010-03-25) and noticed that some tools just do not work on Windows 2000 any longer, which makes troubleshooting a lot harder. I checked all the tools in […]

Why does PSEXEC work if I don’t specify a password?

When I run SysInternals PSEXEC to launch a process on a remote machine, if I specify the password in the command line it fails with: PsExec could not start cmd.exe on web1928: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password. psexec \web1928 -u remoteexec -p mypassword “cmd.exe” or psexec \web1928 -u web1928remoteexec -p mypassword “cmd.exe” If I just specify: psexec \web1928 -u remoteexec “cmd.exe” and type in the password it works just fine. The originating […]

Why does my PowerShell script hang when called in PSEXEC via a batch (.cmd) file?

I’m trying to remotely execute a PowerShell script using PSEXEC. The PowerShell script is called via a .cmd batch file. The reason we do this is to change the execution policy, run the powershell script then reset the execution policy again: On the remote server do-tasks.cmd looks like: powershell -command “&{ set-executionpolicy unrestricted}” powershell DoTasks.ps1 powershell -command “&{ set-executionpolicy restricted}” The PowerShell script DoTasks.ps1 just does this for now: Write-Output “Hello World!” Both of these […]

Prevent a program from deleting files in Windows?

I have an executable program (no source code) that creates temporary files in a certain folder then deletes them at the end. I am having trouble with the program and would like to examine the temporary files to see if there’s anything I can do without changing the source. Is there a way I can prevent the program from deleting files, or alternatively prevent all programs from deleting files in a certain folder? You can […]
