comment Use a server as a remote SOCKS proxy using OpenSSH
I don't really recognize that kind of output that much. i'm used to ipv4 and windows, but if it's only letting localhost connect then you could do *:3333 so I suppose ssh -D *:3333 then it should be open to more than just local host to connect to it. (if that was your problem then that might help) But also why not just try connecting from localhost to localhost.

so presumably you can you do netstat -aon and see a connection established once you connect with putty and that there is listening on port 3333? How about chrome --proxy-server="socks5://192.168.0.5:3333" added- another to try is curl --socks5 192.168.0.5:3333 http://blah (curlis on gnuwin32 or cygwin) Worth trying with 127.0.0.1 too

do you have the ssh server running on 192.16.0.5 port 22 ? also to do a reverse socks.. like such that you get the socks on the remote end it's a bit involved superuser.com/questions/370930/ssh-reverse-socks-tunnel But at least get the local socks working, the ssh -D as that's what you're trying for now and not managing, and that's simpler than the more involved thing.

comment Where does Windows 7 waste my RAM?
@DaveRook obviously he turned off the paging file because if there is writing to hard disk then it slows things down and the theory would be that if there is enough ram then you can do without a paging file. right or wrong that is obviously the theory behind him doing that isn't it.

Since you are a linux man, You may love a program called Cygwin for Window cygwin.com s. It has a load of linux commands for windows. Also gnuwin32 gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages.html download coreutils and others.

@MandarShinde I suppose you could even replace the whole IF, removing the state variable. Using this- IF NOT ERRORLEVEL 1 echo 172.%%x.%%y.%%z is UP >> state.txt and then you could remove the setlocal line too.

@MandarShinde you could do -w 1000 too so it doesn't try for more than a second

i suppose it would be a problem with the script.. if it is saying an IP is up when it is not. You write "But, the result concludes that every system is 'UP' even though some IP addresses are unused." can you state an IP it says is up that doesn't exist?

@YumYumYum Some browsers (not chrome) give a dialog box while downloading then a run option. I don't know if IE does now but IE6 did.But(hacking/exploits aside as they might), no browser is automatically running local executables. Perhaps what you saw was it giving the user the option to download it and then straight after it downloaded, giving the user the option to run it. Can you try it then state what browser and website you see this behaviour that you allege?

@YumYumYum you mention logmein, i've used something like it that may be mistaken for what you describe. I recall it didn't actually execute the file. What it did was gave you a button to click and told you to click run. When you click the button a msgbox comes up asking you if you want to download the file, you say yes. Then the browser's msgbox asks if you you want to run it. So, the browser with user interaction,can run a file.

@YumYumYum is this what you are looking for? stackoverflow.com/questions/5115141/… <-- check if a file exists locally using javascript. And sure if a website has a login then you could verify that way. this link mentions about checking ip stackoverflow.com/questions/391979/…
