Most of you probably know these but are blocked on school PCs and whatnot, but still there's a way to get to command prompt even if its blocked.. Here's how to do it:

Run :: command.com (not a website trust me) :: press enter - there you have it.. command prompt! :)


It's no secret that in most schools proxies and other sites are blocked. There is ways to get to them still unless they've resolved the IP and blocked that too. But here's how to get the IP adress to get to the site (Using the IP is not the same as using the Text-URL):

Go to Run :: command.com :: press enter :: type ping (site text-url) :: enter (e.g ping www.google.com)
Some more information on how to use ping here. Taken from the info when you type ping without
Ping Commands:
[-t] [-a] [-n count] [-l size] [-f] [-i TTL] [-v TOS] [-r count] [-s count]
[[-j host-list] | [-k host-list]] [-w timeout] target_name

Commands Explained:

-t Ping the specified host until stopped
-a Resolve adresses to hostnames
-n count Number of echo requests to send
-l size Send buffer size.
-f Set Don't Fragment flag in packet
-i TTL Time To Live
-v TOS Type Of Service
-r count Record route for count hops
-s count Timestamp for count hops
-j host-list Loose source route along host-list
-k host-list Strict source route along host-list
-w timeout Timeout in milliseconds to wait for each reply

Once you've got the IP from the ping command's returned string put that IP into your IE Browser and you'll be onto the website.


There is also a way to abort shutdowns using shutdown.exe (a command line based application - so it's going in this tutorial)
All you have to do is here nice and simple:

start menu :: run :: shutdown.exe -a :: enter


There is more commands than you think to control your operating system. Controlling shutdown.exe is an easier one.

Shutdown commands:

[-i | -l | -s | -r | -a] [-f] [-m \\computername] [-t xx] [-c "comment"] [-d up:xx:yy]

Commands Explained

-i Displays GUI interface, must be first option
-l Log off (cannnot be used with -m option)
-s Shutdown the computer
-r Shutdown and restart the computer
-a Abort a shutdown
-m Remote computer to shutdown/restart/abort
-t xx Set timeout for shutdown to xx seconds
-c "comment" Shutdown Comment (maximum 127 chars)
-f Forces running applications to close without warning
-d [u][p]:xx:yy The reason code for the shutdown

They can all be executed with the Run program in the start menu.

I'll work this command line tricks up when I find out more and have the time. :wink:

:laugh:

You make a tutorial, and you Can't made a code from it.

No, those aren't comments. Try learning how to use the command prompt before making tutorials on it.

Well so fucking what I'm tired atm. \\ is not the same as // i know but I've only just taken the time to look carefully at your post.

Re: Command Prompt Tricks

I'm pointing out that the \\ is needed for that line of code to work.

Say my computer was "hax". I would need to type "\\hax" into the prompt, not "hax".

No, really. I like this tutorial, because the tutorial "board" is so empty (compared to other boards) and nobody posts threads in it :(
