I'm trying to redirect the output of netstat to a file and it doesn't work.

Initially I tried:

runas /noprofile /user:xxxxx\administrator "netstat -a -b > C:\temp\file.txt"

Then I read somewhere that the output of netstat is sent to std.err:

runas /noprofile /user:xxxxx\administrator "netstat -a -b 2>C:\temp\file.txt"

I've also tried it this way:

runas /noprofile /user:xxxxx\administrator "netstat -ab 2> C:\temp\file.txt"

None of these seem to result in the file C:\temp\file.txt being populated with the output.

actually using 1> instead only worked on my machine, not on the user's machine. :-p –  leeand00 Feb 7 '13 at 16:21
    
Is the C:\temp\file.txt created by any or all of the above commands, with nothing written to it? Does the output of the netstat command appear on the screen (or anywhere else)? Have you tried this with a simple command, like dir, date /t, hostname, or ping 127.0.0.1? –  Scott Feb 7 '13 at 20:24

I suggest trying:

runas /noprofile /user:xxxxx\administrator "netstat -a -b" > C:\temp\file.txt

or:

runas /noprofile /user:xxxxx\administrator "netstat -a -b" 2> C:\temp\file.txt

i.e., redirect the output of the runas command (which should encompass the output of the netstat command) rather than redirecting the output of the netstat command directly.
