Netscan - a freeware swiss-knife tool

Netscan is the swiss knife of the tools for administrators. It reminds me of Lansweeper, but for realtime scan and information gathering from the computers and devices on the network, thumbs up for the ease of use and list of features:

 

  • Pings computers and displays those alive.
  • Detects hardware MAC-addresses, even across routers.
  • Detects hidden shared folders and writable ones.
  • Detects your internal and external IP addresses.
  • Scans for listening TCP ports, some UDP and SNMP services.
  • Retrieves currently logged-on users, configured user accounts, uptime, etc.
  • You can mount and explore network resources.
  • Can launch external third party applications.
  • Exports results to HTML, XML, CSV and TXT
  • Supports Wake-On-LAN, remote shutdown and sending network messages.
  • Retrieves potentially any information via WMI.
  • Retrieves information from remote registry, file system and service manager.
  • It is absolutely free, requires no installation, and does not contain any adware/spyware/malware.

Thinclient using ThinStation to automatically connect to a vncserver

Since I was requested a thinclient (an old Neoware ca10) to automatically connect to a vnc server, I've used this special configuration setting for TSOMatic :

### ---     Thinstation Build Config     --- ###
################################################
#
#
# This is Thinstation's basic setup file. In this file you decide which
# hardware, programs and features to be included in the Thinstation
# boot image generated by running "./build".
#
# You can customize/limit the possibilities in the thinstation.conf
# files later.
#
# Anything after a "#" is a comment. You activate "things" by removing
# the "#" and remove "things" by putting a "#" in front of them.
#
# First we define which modules to include. Modules are hardware
# drivers. NEVER include more than necessary - the more modules, the
# longer boot time.
 
################################################
### --- Modules to include in boot image --- ###
################################################
 
# Any modules may be added as "module" or "module_pkg".
# If defined as a "module", the driver is included in the boot image.
# If defined as a "module_pkg", the driver is added from outside the
# image, such as from a tftp server.  See note below for more details.
#
# Normally you should use "module".  Only use "module_pkg" if you want
# to dynamically load modules. 
 
# Note: If you create a module_pkg network driver, and decide to load it
#       from a tftp server, it won't work.  This is because the image
#       won't have a network driver to get the module_pkg in the first
#       place.

Then I used a Dam Small Linux to change the Operating system, by booting from an USB pen created by following the instructions on this site:
http://www.pendrivelinux.com/all-in-one-usb-dsl/

Iv'e copied the files generated for local disk installation:


initrd
syslinux
syslinux.cfg
vmlinuz

to a directory called install on the Dam small linux USB pen.

I've booted the USB pen on the Thinclient, then I've mounted the usb pen:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1

Install syslinux:



cd /mnt/sda1/install
syslinux /dev/hda1

I got into error:
"syslinux: possibly unsafe /tmp permissions"

So I needed to correct the permissions of the /tmp directory:


chmod 1777 /tmp

Repeating the process worked great, the system now boots and connects as desired.
