mRemoteNG - External Applications



 Here is a list of the Applications you can add in your mRemote External Applications
 Application: Windows Computer Manager
This will let you launch the Windows Computer Management MMC against the selected host. This MMC will let you view event logs, manage users, configure disks, manage services, and a whole bunch more.
Filename: C:\windows\system32\compmgmt.msc
Arguments: /Computer=%Hostname%


Application: 
Zenmap GUI
Zenmap is a GUI front-end for nmap. This is the standard port-scanning tool in use by anybody who knows the difference. Gives you all sorts of detail you won't find in the built-in port scanning tool.
Filename: 
C:\Program Files\Nmap\zenmap.exe
Arguments: -p "Quick scan plus" -t %Hostname%


Application: 
WinSCP
WinSCP is a great, free GUI Secure Copy program.
Filename: 
C:\Program Files\WinSCP\WinSCP.exe
Arguments: scp://%Username%:%Password%@%Hostname%/
 
Application: FileZilla FTP
Free and open source FTP client for most platforms.
Filename: 
C:\Program Files\FileZilla FTP Client\filezilla.exe
Arguments: ftp://%Username%:%Password%@%Hostname%


Application: 
FileZilla SFTP
Same as above, but using the Secure FTP (SFTP) protocol.
Filename: 
C:\Program Files\FileZilla FTP Client\filezilla.exe
Arguments: sftp://%Username%:%Password%@%Hostname%

Application: VMware Virtual Infrastructure Client
This is specific to anybody managing a VMware vSphere or ESX environment. This will launch the VI client against the selected host. If the host is an ESX server, it will simply connect to the ESX server. If the host is a Windows machine running vCenter, it will attach to the full vCenter environment.
Filename: 
C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\Virtual Infrastructure Client\Launcher\VpxClient.exe
Arguments: 
-s %Hostname% -u %Username% -p %Password%

Application: Firefox
I personally don't like the browser integration in mRemoteNG. It doesn't allow me to use all of my Firefox plugins. Therefore I just use a an external app to launch websites.
Filename: 
C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe
Arguments: %Hostname%

Application: Ping
It's ping, needs no explanation
Filename: 
cmd
Arguments: /c ping -t %HostName%

Application: Traceroute
Again, no explanation needed...
Filename: 
cmd
Arguments: /c set /P = | tracert %HostName%

Application: TOAD
Filename: 
C:\Program Files\Quest Software\Toad for Oracle\TOAD.exe

Powershell - How to use a config file (ini, conf,…) with a Powershell Script ? Is it possible ?

Is it possible to use a configuration file with a PowerShell script ?
for example, the configuration file:
#links
link1=http://www.google.com
link2=http://www.apple.com
link3=http://www.microsoft.com

and then call this information in the PS1 script:
start-process iexplore.exe $Link1

thanks in advance for your help!!

Your answers put me on the good track and I found this

SETTINGS.TXT
#from http://tlingenf.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!B1B09F516B5BAEBF!213.entry
#
[General]
MySetting1=value

[Locations]
InputFile="C:\Users.txt"
OutputFile="C:\output.log"

[Other]
WaitForTime=20
VerboseLogging=True

POWERSHELL COMMAND
#from http://tlingenf.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!B1B09F516B5BAEBF!213.entry
#
Get-Content "C:\settings.txt" | foreach-object -begin {[email protected]{}} -process { $k = [regex]::split($_,'='); if(($k[0].CompareTo("") -ne 0) -and ($k[0].StartsWith("[") -ne $True)) { $h.Add($k[0], $k[1]) } }

then

After executing the code snippet, a variable ($h) will contain the values in a HashTable.
Name                           Value
----                           -----
MySetting1                     value
VerboseLogging                 True
WaitForTime                    20
OutputFile                     "C:\output.log"
InputFile                      "C:\Users.txt"

*To get an item from the table use the command $h.Get_Item("MySetting1").*

Move a Computer Object to an OU

I’m currently working on the configuration of HP Rapid Deployment Pack (RDP) and I had to create a task who will automatically move the Computer object in the good OU.

So I want to move a computer object to the good OU depending of the SERVERNAME
In my company we use the name convention MTL1ASTT01:

MTL is the city name
1 is the site number
A for application
STT custom info
01 number of the server
In our Active Directory we use:

DOMAIN.local > GLOBAL > %SITENAME% > SERVERS

So if want to get the SITENAME and the SITENUMBER from the SERVERNAME i would use the code below, it will select

echo. Getting Sitename from the Computer name ...
Set SITENAME=%COMPUTERNAME%:0,4%
echo. SITENAME is %SITENAME%
dsmove "CN=%COMPUTERNAME%,OU=COMPUTERS,DC=DOMAIN,DC=LOCAL" -newparent OU=Servers,OU=%SITENAME%,OU=GLOBAL,DC=DOMAIN,DC=LOCAL
