nunit testing 32-bit apps on 64-bit machine

NetCmdlets support PSCredentials

Previously with NetCmdlets, authentication details were only accepted using plain text parameters. This is still supported, but now these cmdlets support PSCredentials through a new -credentials parameter. This works for almost all of the cmdlets included in NetCmdlets, like FTP, LDAP, HTTP, SMTP, Rexec, RSS, IM, SMS, SSH, etc. Here's an example with get-ldap. Before, you had to bind to the directory server using plain text parameters, like this: PS C:\> get-ldap -server testboy -binddn mydomain\admin ......

NetCmdlets Part 3: PowerShell and Active Directory using /n software's LDAP cmdlet

MOW's "PowerShelled" blog is another awesome PowerShell resource. Of particular interest to me was MOWs series on PowerShell and Active Directory.

The LDAP cmdlet supports plain connections as well as secure SSL connections.
