comment How to find a router at an unknown location in a house?
This reminds me of a classic Bash.org post: <erno> hm. I've lost a machine.. literally lost. it responds to ping, it works completely, I just can't figure out where in my apartment it is.

comment Change local IP address programmatically?
Depending on your use case and platform, you may be better off looking for methods to script it with PowerShell or using NETSH.

comment Why do later versions of Windows continue to use shortcut files instead of symbolic links?
@LưuVĩnhPhúc It's worth noting that the second issue you call out is directly tied to the first - they're not really separate examples of changes to Notepad. The "Bush hid the facts" bug was introduced as a direct result of code that was added for Unicode support, starting with NT 3.5. This is made fairly clear by the Wiki article you linked. In fact, it's likely the bug wasn't part of Notepad at all - some other text-editing applications exhibited the same issue (again, in the Wiki), probably due to a bug in an OS-provided function instead of the application itself.

Points 1-7 could all be summarized under: "Shortcuts are handled by the shell, instead of the file system, which enables a number of additional features and forward flexibility while retaining compatibility with current, future, and legacy file systems."

comment Why would “nmap -p -” miss an open port?
I don't think changing how we tell Nmap to target all ports is going to help, when Nmap is already confirming in its output that all ports are being tested. And I'd rather avoid running any more all-port scans than I need to, to test this. The target system is mine, but currently the intervening infrastructure is not. Also, see my edit to the question. (Note: While it points to a probable cause of the problem, the question is also looking for a solution/workaround.)

comment Why would “nmap -p -” miss an open port?
Pretty sure nmap -p 1-65535 or nmap -p0- would be redundant of what I've already tried. (Except that the latter would hit "port zero".) Nmap's report for nmap -p - or nmap -p- already states 65,534 filtered ports are omitted from the output. I'd rather not specify the missed port, but I will say it's above 10,000.

Identical results when run from CLI with nmap -p-.
