SlickEdit 2009 Evaluation

I was asked to evaluate SlickEdit 2009, so I dropped Ultra-Edit for about three weeks and used only SlickEdit 2009. Here is a little “log” of my thoughts on the switch: - SE setup asked to add to my system path – I don’t like having to add stuff to my path. What is the benefit of adding this? [SE Staff:] Many of our customers are heavy keyboard and command line users. Adding SlickEdit to the path allows you to invoke it and its related utilities using the command line. - The first thing I went to ......

Troubleshooting FTP connections with PowerShell

I find that helping people troubleshoot FTP connectivity issues is much easier if they have PowerShell installed. I can just have them run the NetCmdlets ftp cmdlets with the –debug switch, which displays a trail of information about the communication over the wire. In this way you can see every command send to the server and every response coming back from the server, including what ports a server is attempting to use for ftp data connections. Very often ftp transfer connectivity errors are the ......

PowerShell Server v2 vs PowerShell v2 Remoting via WinRM

A lot of people have asked me to explain the differences in the PowerShell Server v2 product with the obvious alternative: PowerShell v2 Remoting via WinRM. PowerShell Server The nutshell is that with the PowerShell Server, you are not limited to Windows machines and you don’t need WinRM or any other software other than the PowerShell Server itself and any old SSH client. This means that the “client” machine, where the commands are being sent from, can be anything – a Linux machine, a handheld device ......

Generating KML with RSSBus

RSSBus is good for more than just generating RSS feeds or helping you easily create an API for your data or services. Its also useful in easily outputting other formats as well, such as KML (an XML format for Google Earth). For example, recently Tim posted an example of using XmlTextWriter to generate KML. For most of ius, its not rocket science, but compare his code and the ease of writing it with how it can be done with RSSBus. With RSSBus you can just literally write the XML and plug-in the values ......

How to Execute SQL PowerShell Commands Anywhere

SQL Server 2008 PowerShell Cmdlets + /n software PowerShell Server v2 = Execute SQL Queries Anywhere. If you don’t already have the SQL cmdlets for PowerShell, you’ll need to download and install SQL Server 2008.

Why is configuring Net-snmp so painful?

This incomplete tutorial gets a person started, but then bails on the second half of the process of configuring actual users. Instead it points you to the man page, which is basically useless and conflicts with directions mentioned in the snmp.conf man page! Ugh! This page is a little bit better, it helps me get an authNoPriv user up and going. From there, I was able to add my authPriv users too: As described in the first tutorial mentioned above, run snmpconf –g basic_setup and then copy over the ......

NetCmdlets Invoke-Telnet?! And other PowerShell madness.

On last week’s PowerScripting Podcast, Jonathan Walz and Hal Rottenberg interview /n software’s Eric Madariaga about NetCmdlets and PowerShellToys (PowerShellASP). My favorite part was when Hal was shocked to hear that a telnet cmdlet was added to the v2 beta. Hahaha. I completely agree – who uses telnet anymore? But that was actually the biggest request we got from people who were using v1 of NetCmdlets! We already had cmdlets for executing commands over ssh…but people really wanted telnet. This ......
