The Windows NT and Windows 2000 Resource Kits come with a number of command-line tools that help you administer your Windows NT/2K systems. This is a collection of similar tools, including some not included in the Resource Kits. What sets these tools apart is that they all allow you to manage remote systems as well as the local one. The first tool in the suite was PsList, a tool that lets you view detailed information about processes, and the suite is continually growing. The "Ps" prefix in PsList relates to the fact that the standard UNIX process listing command-line tool is named "ps", so I've adopted this prefix for all the tools in order to tie them together into a suite of tools named PsTools. Note: some anti-virus scanners report that one or more of the tools are infected with a "remote admin" virus. None of the PsTools contain viruses, but they have been used by viruses, which is why they trigger virus notifications. The tools included in the PsTools suite, which are downloadable as a package, are: PsExec - execute processes remotely, PsFile - shows files opened remotely, PsGetSid - display the SID of a computer or a user, PsInfo - list information about a system, PsKill - kill processes by name or process ID, PsList - list detailed information about processes, PsLoggedOn - see who's logged on locally and via resource sharing (full source is included), PsLogList - dump event log records, PsPasswd - changes account passwords, PsService - view and control services, PsShutdown - shuts down and optionally reboots a computer, PsSuspend - suspends processes, PsUptime - shows you how long a system has been running since its last reboot (PsUptime's functionality has been incorporated into PsInfo). All of the utilities in the PsTools suite work on Windows Vista, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

Simple Static IP is a free program by PcWinTech.com to help users set their IP address to static with just a few clicks. At times there may be a reason you need to have your IP address set to static.

When port forwarding you forward to your local IP address, and if your IP changes your port forwarding will no longer work as it is not pointing to your new IP. This is the same for nearly all settings in a router that points to your computer, such as DMZ and logging. So to keep that from happening you need to set your IP to static so it never changes, then you no longer have to worry about your IP changing. (This should be done for computers behind a router) .....(free).....

What is Port Triggering Initiator? When you use port triggering on your router a connection attempt must be made from your computer to an address on the trigger port. When you router detects the connection attempt your router then turns on the ports, thus you have port triggering, a on/off switch for port forwarding. Well the problem comes if you are using port trigging for a program that doesn't make a connection attempt, such as say a ftp server or hosting a game. If a connection is never detected the router never enables the ports. Well that's what Port Triggering Initiator is designed for. You enter the triggering port to make a connection on and give it a address outside your network. Any address will do even if the connection fails its the attempt that triggers the port

TestMy.net will provide you with real-world broadband speed test results in real-world conditions. We stand for the consumer not the ISP so TestMy does not inflate scores to make your provider look better than they are or host our test servers on the edge of ISP networks. Our speed test servers are configured to maintain quality of service for thousands of miles and are hosted in locations where many popular websites are hosted. We believe this is a more accurate representation of your true speed. Most Internet consumers don't think about the Internet service providers responsibility in peering beyond their own network. Many Internet providers send users to their own internally hosted connection test. When you surf the net, how often are you visiting a server within your hosts network?
