Top CMD prompt Commands Used In Hacking or Basic Use

Here is the Post on Top CMD prompt Commands Used In Hacking or Basic Use. CMD is a power tool which lets you do almost anything with your PC/laptop. There are common commands like CD.. and MD etc which you probably know so we wont get into that. Here are some really useful things a hacker can do with CMD commands.

First, open your Network Connection and right click and select Properties. Then Select TCP/IP and clickProperties again. Now Click on Advanced and WINS tab. Select Default for NeBIOS.

Now back to the main Local Area Connection window, select File and Print Sharing for Microsoft Networks and hit enter. This is just to make sure you have NetBIOS enabled. We will have some fun with NetBIOS on CMD. In case you don’t know how to get CMD by clicking the Windows icon at the left-hand bottom of your screen in all Windows versions and click on Start. Press run from the start, then type “cmd” without quotes.

TCP/IP commands:
telnet
netstat
nslookup
tracert
ping
ftp

NetBIOS commands (just some examples):
nbtstat
net use
net view
net localgroup

TCP/IP stands for transmission control protocol/Internet protocol. As you can guess by the name, TCP/IP is the protocol under which the Internet runs. along with user datagram protocol (UDP). So when you are connected to the Internet, you can try these commands against other Internet computers. Most local area networks also use TCP/IP.

NetBIOS (Net Basic Input/Output System) protocol is another way to communicate between computers. This is often used by Windows computers, and by Unix/Linux type computers running Samba. You can often use NetBIOS commands over the Internet (being carried inside of, so to speak, TCP/IP). In many cases, however, NetBIOS commands will be blocked by firewalls. Also, not many Internet computers run NetBIOS because it is so easy to break in using them.
