comment How to enable Internet Connection Sharing using command line?
Can't try this just now, but you might want to try running Process Monitor and pointing it at your Registry. See what keys/values change when you toggle & apply the setting, then write your script accordingly.

comment How can I ping a range of IP addresses simultaneously
@WilliamHilsum Yeah, that is one downfall of PingInfoView I'm hoping Nir will fix some time. The feature is available in some of his other tools, like FastResolver. The only NirSoft tools I've had problems with in regards to AV are those which are related to password cracking/recovery.

comment Can't enable Remote Desktop in Windows Firewall?
Remote Desktop should automatically open the hole in Windows Firewall for you, once enabled. Are you running another firewall/security program? Is this a personal computer, or part of a corporate network?

comment Full File Path in Reference to Another Workbook in Excel
@Josh Per the faq: "You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face" Unless there's actually a problem caused by the program functioning in this manner, the question becomes one of design choice - a question that nobody on this site (unless they happen to be a Microsoft employee involved in the process) can reasonably be expected to answer in truth.

comment How to edit FF passwords without extensions (directly in FF config files)?
Passwords which need to be retrieved, such as passwords saved in Firefox, should be stored encrypted. Presuming this, there is not likely any way you can directly edit them outside of Firefox's built-in mechanisms or a plugin which is granted access.

comment How to force Windows 7 to ask for a “fresh” IP address from DHCP server?
Fire up a VM or another box and set that to statically take over that IP? It might be more helpful if you could describe the issue you're really troubleshooting.

You could wait for the lease to expire, or try shortening the lease time to expedite the expiration.

You may want to look at getting a TechNet subscription if you'll be doing this sort of testing regularly.

@WilliamHilsum Perhaps AngryIP is the better program, but NirSoft is corporate AV friendly. Important for when you don't get to control the AV's whitelist.

Re-write it as a PowerShell script, and sign that? I've never heard of signed batch files, myself.

This sets off some Antivirus signatures for "Potentially Unwanted Program". I suggest using NirSoft's PingInfoView instead.

@allquixotic You should come join us. It's obvious you've got the proper mindset. C'mon, we don't bite.

@allquixotic So, does that mean you're practicing "security by obscurity"? ;-)
