Useful command line instructions

Just while I'm thinking about some of them:

netstat 20
Lists all the active tcp-ip connections, so you can check for hackers ;-)
(20 is the number of seconds before a repeat)

ipconfig /all
Lists info on all physical network connections

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

Tracert ipAddress/domain name
Traces network hops to remote locations so you can check a failing connection to see where it is failing.

There's a really useful one for rebuilding the Winsock protocol stack, but I don't have it to hand.

I'll add more of these as I think of them.
